Brief Description
The Change Management short course focuses on the competencies required to ensure successful change in an era where the challenges of change require managers to apply a holistic approach in change management.
Research has highlighted various reasons for change failure, including failing change management competence, resistance to change, the inability of managers to deal with resistance, poor strategic alignment, a lack of leadership visibility and support, as well as poor transition leadership.
