Leading and Managing Organisational Change

Programme Overview

There is a popular adage that the only thing that is constant is change. There is almost no organisation that has not been involved in one change effort or the other. However, a few of these organisational change efforts have been very successful. A few have been utter failures; most fall somewhere in between, with a distinct tilt toward the lower end of the scale (Kotter, 1995). How do you leading through change and how do make the change effort worthwhile?
