Or should it be left to Change Managers and other change professionals?
Cath will explore the need for Change Management to be seen as a general management skill rather than a “management fad”. The Dilbert Principle, beloved around Christmas time, emphasises the growth of the discipline as a management fad but can you really move forward with a Continuous Improvement attitude without an understanding of the theories contained within Change Management? Mistakes are often found in projects because the “wetware” are not considered in the programme but if all mangers understood Change would this be the case? Cath will use a variety of case studies and examples to discuss this topic.
