Change Management™ Foundation

Change Management Foundation

Course Description:

Managing change within an organization isn’t easy. According to a recent study, only 25% of the surveyed companies indicated that they were agile and able to respond to changes. The vast majority were either unsuccessful in implementing changes without directly affecting employee morale, or didn’t even try to adopt changes within their organization due to the risks surrounding employee productivity. This course will provide a more in-depth look at adopting effective change management principles and navigating change within the organization.
