Course Outline 

 

THE CHALLENGE

 

Organizations everywhere are besieged by continuous change. The accelerated pace of technological advances, the globalization of information and fluctuations in the world economy have placed incredible pressure on organizations to adapt quickly. To thrive, not merely survive, in this fast‑paced competitive environment, organizations are not only required to improve productivity, but also compete in their ability to deliver innovation, quality, customization and convenience. 

 

They must structure and manage themselves to work interdependently, with a common purpose.

 

Our Transformational Change program is designed to help organizations achieve remarkable advancements in the face of enormous change.  It addresses the needs of both individuals and teams, focusing on key skill areas such as creative problem solving, inter-group communications, negotiation and interpersonal relations.  Fundamental to the training process is an underlying belief in the power of values, continuous learning, innovation and win: win attitudes and behavior.  Individuals not only gain greater insight into the objectives of their organization and team, but also develop a plan for their own performance breakthroughs.

 

The essential characteristic of a successful organization is a unifying "ethos", a set of values and principles shared by all, and an "esprit de corps".  This common purpose pulls the organization together and becomes its bedrock in times of great change.

 

 

ORGANIZATION IN TRANSITION

 

In the face of massive change, many organizations have begun to restructure. The traditional, multi-tiered hierarchy may no longer serve organizations well.  Size, rigidity and insistence on conformity encourage dependency, inhibiting quick and innovative responses in a changing "market place".  Hence, the birth of a new organizational structure ... the flexible network.  The network model has as its basic building block THE TEAM and its characteristic "signature" is interdependency.  It excels in flexibility, broadened decision making and emphasis on individual accountability.  With this structure, organizations are equipped to rapidly adopt specialized focus groups or project teams in response to the inevitable challenges and opportunities.

 

 

UNDERSTANDING CHANGE

 

The emergence of an interdependent network model and the empowerment of workers and teams require a full understanding of the nature and implications of transformational change.  Incremental change is a simple step-by-step process and relatively easy to predict and manage.  By contrast, transformational change is difficult to predict and tends to be complex, messy, confusing and, for many, threatening.  We have developed a model identifying the key stages of transformational change.

 

Our program helps individuals deal with the stress and strain of transformational change.  Participants gain a full understanding of the four main phases of change and learn to manage ambiguity, a key breakthrough skill.  By becoming `ChangeMasters`, participants enhance their own performance, empowering both themselves and the interdependent work team.

 

During the initial workshop, participants will be introduced to the Transformational Change Model that translates the theory of change into a practical process for dealing with everyday workplace issues. The Process starts with a skills assessment ‘ChangeMaster Questionnaire" through which participants obtain a measurement of their competency in the first Four Essential Skill Area.  This provides the launch pad for key performance breakthroughs.
