Event Details


Culture has often been cited as an obstacle to change. It manifests in different forms; from “Not invented here, so we won’t use it”, “Culture of No”, “Not my Job”, “I didn’t sign up for this” to “I will outwait this”. How do you bring in innovative ideas to your organization and make them stick? How do you anticipate and prepare for change? How do you enable and encourage change agents? Join us at the 2015 Management of Change to find out!
