Change Management

Introduction

Today's organizations must integrate and align people, processes, structures, culture, and strategy in order to successfully transition individuals and groups from a current state to a desired future state, such that the desired outcomes and business objectives are achieved. Unfortunately, many managers still view their primary responsibility as managing specific business functions (resources, time, scope, budgets, etc.) and have a difficult time understanding and properly integrating organizational change management activities through successful strategic execution.

Organizational change directly affects everyone from the entry-level employee to senior management; therefore, everyone must learn how to handle changes to the organization. Managers and executives are charged with the additional responsibility for making change happen in and through the different levels of strategic execution.
