Managing Change in a Complex Business Environment

June 28, 2017 18:00 - 19:30


  • Online bookings are closed for this event.

Organisational change occurs when a company makes a transition from its current state to a desired future state. Managing organisational change is the process of planning and implementing change so as to minimise employee resistance and cost to the organisation whilst simultaneously maximising the effectiveness of the change effort.

Change within an organisation is often made by leadership working with a long-term vision for the company as opposed to employees whose horizons may not stretch as far. In order to secure the successful implementation of change, it is important to include and involve those people in the organisation who have a shorter-term agenda in order to help them better understand and value the necessity for change.

Organisational change can be met with internal resistance and negativity. Strong leaders know that it is impossible to be liked by everyone, but implementing an unpopular change, whether due to technological advances, M&A, or the economic environment, can prove challenging even for the most experienced and competent of leaders.

How do you incentivise people to change, particularly if they might not be part of the end result? How do you communicate the benefits and rationale for the change, and effectively manage employees through it whilst retaining trust, credibility and respect within the organisation? How do you spot potential 'stealth bombers' who may quietly sabotage progress?

Join our interactive toolbox session at the BCCJ office to hear how managers can successfully navigate their way through change in a complex business environment, and to discuss the answers to the questions above.
