2 Transformational Change

View Guide

This guide explains what is meant by transformational change. In an increasingly competitive environment, change is an inevitable and intrinsic part of organisational life. Change may be constant but it is not often the same – different situations require different approaches to change. This guide will help you understand change and shows how you, as a leader, can deliver change that transforms. (27 pages, 5 tools)

3 Sustaining Change

View Guide

Initiating and delivering change may be hard, is certainly important, but alone is not enough. For change to really have an impact it must be sustained. Sustaining change is about three things:

Maintaining performance whilst making changes.
Coping with change, especially difficult change.
Building processes to sustain positive change focused on improvement.

Many books on change management deal with how you prepare for change. What is often overlooked is support for leaders dealing with change after the event. This guide show you how to sustain change. (26 pages, 5 tools)
