Proven Practices for Successful Change

The #1 reason projects fail is employee resistance to change. Yet most organizations have not developed internal change management competencies to help lead their employees through transformational change. In this practical, hands-on two day program, you will learn the fundamentals of successful change management, receive valuable tools and create the beginnings of your own change management plan using one of your current projects. 

  • Understand the Driving Forces for Change in Today’s Work Environment
  • Realize How People Perceive and Approach Changes
  • Learn Change Engagement Best Practices that will Enable You to Plan for and Manage Change Effectively
  • Use a Structured, Best Practice Change Management Methodology to Create a Functional “Real-life” Change Management Plan
  • Leave with Tools and Templates to Further Guide You in Planning Change Engagement Processes

Pre-work: Come to the program prepared with a “Change Charter.” This should include a change currently planned or underway in your organization.
