    Research consistently shows that failure rates of change initiatives have been reported as high as 70-80%. The failure of many change initiatives to deliver what they promise is serious, but not inevitable. There is a strong and growing body of evidence that demonstrates the value of well-established change management practices in improving the success rate. This course is dedicated to sharing the kinds of insights and practices that lead to these improvements in success rates.

    Improving success rates requires planning –

    “Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.” ― Alan Lakein, author.
