Organizational change is a complex progression involving multiple interrelated aspects of an organization; changes in one part of the organization often have profound effects on other parts. In our local context, planning for change, identifying forces of change, assessing resistance, selecting an intervening path and nurturing continuous change hold critical importance. Acquiring skills in these areas is becoming inevitable for managers who want to effectively manage and implement change initiatives.

This 4-day in-depth program enables managers to understand and strategize organizational change, as well as anticipate and manage the impact at an individual and team level.  

 

 

Participants will learn to: 

  • Apply the underlying frameworks of organizational change
  • Identify the roles of change leaders, change agents and the recipients of change
  • Develop strategies for designing and implementing change programs involving all stakeholders
  • Address the challenges in implementation of change programs across the organization
  • Effectively anticipate and deal with resistance to change within the organization
  • Institutionalize change with the help of a sustaining change plan

 State of the art simulation and an integrated change project will equip participants with pragmatic and cutting-edge tools to understand the issues related to change management and develop the skills needed to understand, analyze, plan and implement change successfully.

This program is meant for senior business executives including General Managers who desire to deepen their understanding of the change process. Moreover, those coming to attend this program must be willing to exploit new business opportunities by being the change agents and also by mobilizing the forces of change in their enterprises.
