Why should I present a leading change course?

This training course material offers many benefits for companies with management skills for new managers training needs. We developed this course to meet the following training needs. To illustrate:

  • Gartner identified that, on average, companies have gone through 5 major companywide changes in the past three years.
  • Here’s another quite important finding. Gartner reveals that nearly 75% of companies expect to increase the number of change initiatives undertaken in the next three years. You might notice a lot of potential for the delivery of learning and development initiatives.
  • We’ve learned it’s one thing to talk about building skills like “change leadership skills” and another to deliver change management projects successfully. To illustrate, Gartner also raised some sobering facts. To illustrate, about half of the change initiatives failed, and 34% reported apparent success. And 16 % of these initiatives report mixed results.
  • On the other hand, Forbes suggests that in today’s competitive business environment and marketplaces, effective change leadership skills are more essential than ever.
  • Similarly, Google identified that employee engagement in change initiatives is greatly benefited through the activities of executive sponsorship or the skills of the change leader.
  • Equally, we’ve seen recent research by Gartner found that shifting implementation planning to employees will improve the probability of success by 12%.
  • Probably no huge surprise here, but a PWC study identified that 74% of employees contacted are interested in developing new skills or re-train to remain employable.
