Managing Organizational Change is based on the Cycle of Change model and outlines the 4 things successful organisations have and the 6 things they do which enable them to realise a better return on investment more quickly, and consistently deliver great improvements for their customers, staff and shareholders.
We know that organisations need to adapt to survive, but research and our own experience is still telling us that projects don’t always deliver what the organisation needs and changes cause havoc to our staff and customers. In fact, the money we spend on improving our organisations is delivering what it promises less than half of the time. That’s not great odds!
