Managing Change

  • Course Duration: 1 day


Perhaps the most challenging aspect of improvement is that it necessitates change. The greater the improvement, the greater the challenge for management to lead their organisation from its present position to one which is more competitive. Sometimes organisations make the right strategic decisions, but do not reach their intended destination because they have failed to identify and navigate their way around the obstacles en route.

This 1-day course identifies the classic obstacles to change, explains why they exist and what needs to be done to avoid, eliminate or reduce these obstacles. It does not propose ready-made solutions, because every organisation is sufficiently different to require bespoke treatment. However, the course covers what every manager should know about managing change successfully.

  • Managers who want a clear explanation of what they and their fellow managers must do to implement organisational change successfully.
