Managing Change

Implementing change is not an option for successful organisations, it’s a

necessity. A glance at the roll-call of recently failed companies 1 shows that

past performance is no guarantee of future success.

Making effective change requires leaders to inspire people to think

and behave differently – motivating them to understand and own the

need for change and commit to its implementation.

The Managing Change programme at Henley concentrates on giving

you the tools to embed change in your organisation and to create an

enduring culture of innovation and adaptability. You will leave with

techniques to manage change successfully from a strategic, leadership

and process perspective. It will also show you where your time and effort

is likely to have most effect – and where it won’t. Several change ‘myths’

will be put to rest during this programme!

Who is the programme for

Any senior manager required to lead a change initiative from a large scale

organisation or cultural change to a smaller departmental or team-based change.
