Change is a significant part of organizational life. To become effective, organizations must adapt to the larger changing business environment, customer changing preferences, changes in technology and social norms. They must also change in response to market competition, to enter new markets or to seek other revenue sources.
But change can be difficult for organizations as they must sometimes do away with old processes and systems and get groups and individuals to buy in. Only 54% of change initiatives succeed, according to a 2013 survey by Strategy & Katzenbach (PWC). The survey reinforces the difficulty in change initiatives. But change is inevitable if organizations are to transform their business models to meet changing market conditions, disruptions, customer expectations and regulatory compliance. To drive successful change initiatives, organizations need effective leaders who can involve the organization in identifying, implementing, managing and sustaining critical change initiatives to meet both short-and long-term goals.
Designed for today’s businesses and organizations, the Leading Change Workshop focuses on developing leaders who can effectively lead transformation and change during difficult times. Leadership is critical to successful organizational change. As John P. Kotter once wrote “Transformations often begin, and begin well, when an organization has a new head who is a good leader and who sees the need for a major change. If the renewal target is the entire company, the CEO is key. If change is needed in a division, the division general manager is key. When these individuals are not new leaders, great leaders, or change champions, phase one can be a huge challenge.”
