In addition, it will help you to transition people from the current to the future state to realize desired business objectives.Why does managing change matter? Large-scale change constantly confronts leaders and managers as they plan and execute strategy in their organizations. What they need is a road map to manage the multi-faceted human aspects of change, helping them to transition critical stakeholders from Point A to B. Alignment between leaders and those impacted by change increases performance, reduces risk/cost and helps the team ‘get the job done.’What will you learn?Create a change management road map to address the people side of changeAlign key leaders on the vision/business case for change & their role as sponsorsMaximize employee engagement & adoption of change to reach business goalsAssess the organizational culture to foresee how it may assist or hinder the changePrepare the organization through communication, training and knowledge transferThroughout the course, I will provide you with tools & templates for each step.
