An accelerating pace of change in the outside world places new demands on companies and their individuals. The ability to adjust and sometimes radically change operations based on new conditions is required to succeed. Studies show that up to 70% of change projects fail to achieve the set goals. The main reasons are rarely technical problems or lack of resources. What is missing, however, is often an active and visible leadership. Implementing a change process and working effectively with change management requires preparation, control, and management.

In the programme, elements of lectures are interspersed with discussions. The purpose is to build the participants’ own understanding of change leadership, and to offer tools and methods for driving and succeeding with change management.

Based on both research findings and their own and other participants’ experiences, the participants develop their individual and concrete change model to use in future change projects.
