Changes are inevitable. They occur daily and sometimes unexpectedly in today’s dynamic business climate. Some are small—a meeting moves or a customer adjusts his order—while others are monumental—an employee joins the team or is laid off, a department’s goals shift or a company merges with another. Whether big or small, change can cause apprehension, but it doesn’t have to be a negative experience.

This course is designed to provide you information and practice in understanding, planning for, addressing and leveraging change in the workplace using change management skills.
