Change management

How we keep up with change under control

It is in the human nature to resist change just as it is in the human nature to always look for better ways of doing things. And yet if there had not been the change as our society would have shown today? Or would it have existed? Many of the revolutionary inventions opposed resistance when they were discovered from ignorance, fear, reticence. The need for change is also emerging in the organizations, and so is the reluctance to change.

How to accept the change more easily, how to implement it better and with the best possible results are some of the questions this course will answer.
