TITLE: The Only Constant is Change
Uncertainty, complexity and rapidly changing organizational environments create the necessity for organizations to respond to and effectively deal with turbulence and instability. The capability of an organization's employees to adapt to such conditions, adopt and successfully use new practices, technologies, and develop ways of performing organizational tasks is vital to proactive and sustainable organizations. Managing change and OD are essential to these processes.
In this event, we’ll:·
- Debate the roles of change agents - internal as well as external change management/OD consultants
- Discuss the importance of the political, cultural, and technological contexts
- Mutually explore customized change and OD intervention strategies
