The global management consultancy, McKinsey & Co. stated some years ago that change management as traditionally applied, is outdated.
They highlighted that 70 percent of change programs fail to achieve their goals, largely due to employee resistance and lack of management support. They also stated that when people are truly invested in change, it is 30 percent more likely to last.
The executive team clearly has a key role in making major change programs work in a sustained manner. A realistic, well-planned strategy, ongoing, honest two-way communication from the top down and visible executive sponsorship are some key factors that can help ensure success.
This workshop will help participants to identify the critical success factors that will help their council to steer their councils through successful major change and assist their employees to embrace uncertainty in a meaningful way.
