Organisations often struggle with the complexity of change management programmes, especially those required when implementing new strategic initiatives or strategic directions. There is no wonder why 95 per cent of all changes required by these initiatives fail and take the strategy implementation with them. Effective change management is not only required when you are implementing strategy, but is required on a daily basis. Whether you are undergoing a merger, cost optimisation or business process re-engineering; in order for you to realise the success of these initiatives, you will need to have a robust change management programme that delivers the required results at the speed of your organisational growth, without disrupting current operations. Whatever change you need to implement, the answer lies in your leadership and in your people.
