Organizational transformation is often the biggest test CEO's face. Roughly two-thirds of large-scale change efforts fail. In a market where disruptive technology changes expectations, both internally and among customers, organizational agility isn't a luxury, it's a necessity. Indeed, "The ability to anticipate change and respond nimbly is a game changer..."1

Developing an agile leadership team across the organization, one that thrives in an environment of growth and change, requires an understanding of the phases of change, and the associated psychological transitions that all members of the organization must work through to fully support ongoing organizational change. It also requires developing and implementing strategies for leveraging those phases and developing a shared vision for the future. In addition, the systems, SOP's, and policies must change to support new ways of working. CEO's who have led successful large-scale transformation efforts understand this, as they report, "...culture isn't something you fix, it's what you get after you've put new processes or structures into place to tackle tough business challenges." The tools that these successful transformation leaders utilize help unleash the potential of organizational talent.


By attending Organizational Transformation, you will be prepared to:

  • Adopt a holistic, transitions-focused, model of organizational change
  • Identify needed system changes such as
    • Rewards systems
    • Performance management
    • Decision rights tools
  • Facilitate others' ability to lead in an environment of constant change
  • Encourage acceptance of change and identify reasons for resistance
  • Develop and implement strategies for successful, sustainable change during each phase of the process
  • Engage in the steps that successful leaders take to transform your organization

This program is designed for organizational leaders and human resources executives who need to ensure that their transformation efforts are part of the one-third of organizational transformational efforts that are successful.
