As all modern business men and women are aware, there is nothing stable about the world in which we operate. We live and operate in an environment of rapid, and in many cases, uncontrollable change. We too often find ourselves the unintended "victims" of Macro Environmental events such as the global economic meltdown of 2008 or as HR Business Partners being asked to rapidly and efficiently implement a relatively unplanned change initiative.
The issue in our modern world is that we not only need to cope with the increased pace of change, but also the increased magnitude of those changes – more often than not we find ourselves facing a veritable "tsunami" of change!

"It is change, continuing change, inevitable change that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be".
Isaac Asimov

"Don't manage – lead change before you have to, an organisation's ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage".
Jack Welch

The organisation which welcomes the opportunities that change brings will survive and prosper into the future. Change and the ability to manage and gain advantage from change is so critical, that it directly underpins the role of the Strategic Partner, one of the 5 New Roles for HR Practitioners, as projected by Dave Ulrich.

This programme is designed to give all HR Practitioners attending, an opportunity to learn and implement the tools and techniques of the modern Change Agent. Unlike most change programmes, this programme covers in detail, Change Leadership and its importance for successful transformation, in addition to change and transition management. Leave this programme being able to lead and manage a change initiative!
