2 day workshop - 8:30 to 4:30
Large-scale organizational change is here and will be for the foreseeable future. Pressures for change come from many directions and are rarely simple. They usually possess a common thread in that they all impact significantly on people. In the quest for a smooth transition through the change process, by following a change methodology and learning from the experiences of others, we can mitigate against the risks associated with change and take our projects to a successful conclusion.
