Presenter: Mark Hannum
Skill Level: *Advanced* (5+ years of Change Management Experience)
Track: Enterprise Capabilities and Leadership
Today, organizational change isn’t about incremental change events, occasional change in the organization, or programs targeted at making your strategy successful. To be successful, every organization needs to constantly evolve to stay competitive or maintain market leadership.
The ability to respond to the detours of constant change; to be change-ready and agile is now core to navigating success.
Participants in our session will assess the degree of readiness of their organizations to take on change initiatives with the use of tools and resources to evaluate how “change-able” their organizations really are.
They will then create an organizational and structural change strategy, as well as use Linkage tools to help manage the individual and behavioral side of change.
