Strategically applying/utilizing the various disciplines in order to cause organizational change and add value is often referred to as “change management.” Managers and aspiring leaders in the workplace are increasingly being asked to develop the personal skills and attitudes for implementing change as well as a technical understanding of how to apply the tools for change.  Learn how to successfully plan, implement, communicate, create employee involvement and commitment, and add value during change.
