The realities of organizational change affect every individual, every business, and every government. Change and transformation are constants in today's global and technical environment. This course explores theories and concepts which explain how to gain acceptance and buy-in for change management initiatives within organizations. If management and employees accept these changes, the impact will be beneficial and less disruptive to daily operations. Whether the change is as small as the implementation of a new financial system or as big as a plant move across the country, the implementation process necessitates planning and communication to ensure success.
