Accelerating Results with Change Management

Change and transformation are permanent features of our landscape. It often seems that the only constant is change – and the pace of that change is accelerating. This permanent “white water” of change requires employees to frequently operate outside their comfort zone and push the boundaries of their ability to adapt. 

Not surprisingly, studies indicate that up to 75% of change initiatives fail. When you consider the high costs when these efforts go wrong — not only financially but in confusion, lost opportunity, wasted resources, and diminished morale —individuals ultimately need to do their jobs differently. Change management provides a framework that mitigates risk and results in faster speed of adoption, higher utilization, and greater efficiency. 
This session will demonstrate how to accelerate results by deploying change management processes, discuss tools and techniques for more effective change management as well as critical success factors and practical tips for improved performance.

• Articulate the business case for change management.
• Identify five-step model for change.
• Reveal key critical success factors to help prioritize change efforts. 
• Examine tools and techniques to be successful with change management. 
• Explore how to implement change management to mitigate risk, accelerate speed of adoption, foster higher utilization, improve efficiency, build change competency, and accelerate result
