Leaders and managers must focus on business level outcomes rather than individual level inputs and the number one priority to solve business problems.
- Is there a compelling ’case for change’ that the organization will buy in to?
- Leaders and managers as the owners and sponsors of this change and how to actively promote the change and apply pressure as needed?
- Who is involved (leaders, project participants, sub-contractors, end-users, departmental managers, employees, suppliers, customers etc.) and influence their attitude? Will they resist the change? How can we encourage them to act in a way which will support the change objectives?
- What style of engagement will work best and how can we communicate these messages?
Transformational change requires leaders and managers to think of the organization, first and foremost, as a source of strategy implementation and to achieve important business priorities. This means that we must learn to lead and manage change instead of feeling lost in it! The objective of change management is to support organization members and stakeholders to adapt to a new vision, mission, process, and systems, as well as to effectively manage resistance to the changes.
This programme explains the tools and techniques for successfully leading and managing organizational transformational change efforts. You will learn why ‘resistance to change’ is a myth and come to understand why change efforts are often not successful and what to do about that. Finally, participants will learn the different approaches that have been proven to be effective in leading and managing transformational change in dynamic organisations.
