Source: Flevy

Organizations face immense challenges when managing change, especially while rolling out enterprise transformation programs. Whereas most of the organizations are good in formulating strategy, they falter during execution. Poor change management is a major reason for this failure.

In this presentation, we discuss some well established models of change and how an organization can go about using them. Change models of Kurt Lewin, Beckhard/Harris, William Bridges, and John Kotter are presented and discussed in detail.

We also consider multiple metaphors in which an organization can operate and how change can best be managed for such organizations. The presentation also includes details on how to engage stakeholders for effective Change Management.
