Effective Change Management: The Role of Communication

20 May 2011, by Kate Hardman, ABC in Event Archive

Sharon Lieder, Organization Development Consultant

The most effective change initiatives involve a good planning process and a broad communication plan. Quite often the communication portion can be an after thought instead of an integral part of the change effort.

Also, many organizations undertake change projects without an approach for effective change management. This often results in resistance as the employees have not been informed about the change.

Join us on May 18 to explore the best practices in managing change in organizations and the important role of communication.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn a model for change management
  • Review the key components of a communication plan
  • Explore how your role can help your organization more effectively manage change
