What our customers say

Oak Innovation is loved by industry-leading professionals around the world.

WOW!!! An extremely thorough program. Covered the subject from beginning to end.
Stephen Fraundorfer

During the early days of HRD Gateway, a 40,000-member international NGO dedicated to excellence in HRD/HRM, I got to know Oak Innovation and their courseware. I become one of his early customers. I had clients in Asia who wanted training in certain areas. Instead of searching through the net for material, I logged onto his site, found what I wanted, bought his programs, and customized them to suit my client’s requirements. The process saved me a lot of time. Later, I bought the Oak full set of courses. Over the years, I saw Oak grow from a small operation to what it is today. That takes dedication and focus. Because they allowed me to download updates and new versions of the courseware, I found I did not have to go to another provider for my raw material.

Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you you can deliver the key sections of this training course.

What is change – Change is the only constant that we can rely on in the business world. However, we find the differences in how people perceive change is quite amazing. For best results, use the content provided to help your audience to view change as a process that involves “knowing where they are”, “knowing where you want to be” and then working out “how to get there.”

Use the content to explore the different drivers for change that can exist. Next, discuss the change-adept organization. And, the various types of change that can exist. For example, incremental, planned, and transformational change.

Key dimensions Of change – Trying to share that change can happen on many different levels isn’t without its difficulties. Of course, in the real world, change within situations can happen everywhere. People also have different experiences, and the chances of conflicting expectations and criteria for what is a change across groups is widespread. Use the content to explore various dimensions of change. For example, leader-driven, process-driven, and improvement-driven.

During this section, we suggest that you share your perspectives on change management and change leadership. Your experiences and reflections will make the content more meaningful to your audience. And, to put it simply, if you show you care, then your audience will also get the maximum benefit from the content presented. On top of that, your approach will embed the materials already presented and offer considerable opportunities for learning. Use the content to examine the types of change associated with organizational renewal.

Preparing for change – Let’s face it, we are much more prepared for changes in our environments when we have a better understanding of what’s happening around us. We feel open, curious, and even energized, open when we feel like we can take on the challenge. For best results, use the content provided to explore the pressures for change. And then discuss shared visions and actionable first steps.

Why change doesn’t work – There are multiple reasons why a change process may not work. The reasons may appear in isolation, but usually, they can emerge from several sources. For best results, use the content provided to examine why change projects can sometimes fail.

Next, consider some of the reasons why people can resist change and how to deal with ambiguity. A great way to connect with your audience is to incorporate some group discussion at this point and, if possible industry-specific examples. This form of shared storytelling is essential.

Why do we need more change leaders – In basic terms, we learned that all companies need excellent change management skills. This section explores how to focus on change efforts. Change leaders need to be able to identify sources of complacency and act upon them.

Use the content provided to show your audience how to fight complacency within change initiatives. These sources of contentment and resistance must be dealt with professionally and interactively so that they can be fully understood and resolved as part of the overall change process. Use the materials to help your audience to know that the change leader has the responsibility to accomplish this.

Communicating & implementing change – Great communication channels are the cornerstone of all productive change initiatives. So, to set your audience in the right direction and to keep projects on-track, start by discussing common mistakes. For example, ‘they don’t need to know yet, it will only upset them’ or ‘the supervisors already know – they can pass it on’ or are common communication errors that can occur. Help your audience see that making such assumptions on the progress of change will severely hamper the chances of successfully implementing a change program.

Another aspect that your audience will learn about from the content relates to stakeholder involvement and communication. Take, for example, ‘we don’t know the fine details yet, so we will hold off until we have everything perfect before we tell them anything,’ and it’s clear that the effort is being controlled and is not involving everyone which it needs to do. The need for stakeholder involvement when implementing and when coping with change is a critical aspect of this course.
