A WORD FROM OUR ACADEMIC DIRECTOR
“There is no one single approach to change projects. For each one, you need to start afresh and consider what is needed and which technique or method will work the best. After all, every problem is different, and organizations are in constant flux. This doesn’t mean you have to reinvent the wheel, there are some basic principles, but you do have to create the change you want to see, each and every time. Human behavior and employee resistance pose challenges and sometimes obstacles to change projects. That’s why this master class gives ample attention to getting your colleagues on board. My goal is to provide participants with insights and methods they can use to manage change effectively.”
