  • Learn about three different models of change and when each is best applied
  • Integrate these concepts to your specific change efforts

You may be starting at the beginning or halfway through the organizational change.  You may have a plan for change already, and simply need to tweak it.  You may be reflecting on changes that have occurred in the past and thinking ahead to potential changes.  Wherever you are in the process, build your knowledge and stretch your skills about developing a strategy for organizational change.
