About the Presentation
A simple definition of change is “to cause to be different”. The idea of change management on a personal level has been studied for more than one hundred years. However, it is only since the mid-1980’s that change management has been explored within the context of business applications. Leading successful change has become a business necessity, driving bottom-line results in systems, processes and behaviors. Dealing with change has therefore become a critical skill for leadership, management and workers in an organization.
Creating and implementing a new strategy requires an approach consistent with the unique needs of the organization. The strategy serves as the guiding framework, providing direction and shaping decision making throughout the change process.
Understanding the components of change on an individual level can help us relate to its influence at all levels of the organization. Organizational change creates ongoing success. It can also produce many emotions and fears. For our own success, as well as the success of the organization, it is important to understand what happens and how we can lead and create change.
In the course of one lunch time, you will learn two state of the art models for continuous improvement, a different way of thinking, and concepts that can literally change your world. Come join us, you will not regret the investment of one hour.
