In this module of Organizational Change, we will explore the most common reasons for failure and how to overcome them.


Welcome to this e-learning course on Organizational Change and Development!

In today's fast-paced world, organizations must be willing to constantly adapt and evolve their business strategy to stay competitive. 

However, change is not always easy! Though the COVID-19 pandemic showed how the world and businesses could respond to change almost overnight, the reality of change management is much less clear-cut.

Did you know why majority of change initiatives fail? Organizations, like people, are often highly resistant to change, even when we know it’s necessary. As a result, successfully adopting a new strategy with a change initiative, regardless of how incremental or radical, is usually difficult and often time-consuming. And the consequences of a poorly-managed organizational transformation can be devastating. 

When change initiatives fail (and they do so more often than not) they rarely fail on technical skills (hard skills), they fail on the people skills.

In this module, we will explore the most common reasons for failure and how to overcome them. Through interactive exercises and real-world case studies, you will learn best practices for managing change and increasing your chances of success.
