Business leaders know it too well that extreme uncertainty in the business environment has become the new norm. Many senior leaders believe that their organizations are facing critical challenges in these uncertain times and the leadership at the various levels of business are not fully equipped with the right skills and capabilities to lead change effectively.

Leading change in the prevailing climate represents a significant and complex challenge. Organizations may pursue a variety of change strategies, but reaching an agreement on the roadmap for change is essential. Change leaders need to focus on establishing the relevant behaviours, mind-set and culture as well as on creating the right organizational structure and systems. Agility to adjust to rapidly changing environment is a vital ingredient.

Resistance to change is the result of initiating change in the easier part of systems, structure and strategy and ignoring more difficult part of changing the leadership behaviour, culture and mind-set. Many organizations do not appreciate the need to communicate to all the stakeholders’ clear values and a purpose beyond making a profit.

Building a clear, shared agenda for change and developing change leadership capabilities are the twin pillars of successful change management initiative. Change leadership means different things to different people. The program is designed to provide a conceptual clarity on the process and management of change, and to understand the different competencies required to lead the change in the present uncertain environment.
