A detailed course description is as follows:

Today’s business landscape is characterized by instability, uncertainty, and rapid and ongoing change. In this climate, organizations need to heighten their ability to sense movements in their environment, anticipate emerging trends, and be flexible and nimble enough to adjust to changing demands. Adapting to change of this volume and speed requires strong internal change management capabilities, including new mind-sets to accept change as a normal condition, as well as tools to enable the change process itself. This course provides an overview of change fundamentals and a set of tools and templates to use to enable successful organizational transitions, large and small. As a result of this session, participants will be able to build the business case for change, explain the “why” and any drivers behind the change, and create a change management plan for new technology and process rollout.
