Manage change by designing, communicating and coaching people through the process

Ever been asked by your clients to help with change? Been part of an unsuccessful change initiative? Wondered why it’s so hard to communicate effectively about change? That’s because most change initiatives don’t take people and their needs into account.

HCI knows that the key to successful change is focusing on people over processes. This class will help you identify and build the capabilities people need to navigate change successfully.

More than 80% of professionals agree their organisations are in a constant state of change, but only 29% say major change initiatives are well-received.

What you’ll learn
HCI’s approach to change management emphasises people over process. Our research has identified three key roles that HR must play during change. You’ll discover how to identify and build the capabilities people need to navigate change successfully, using principles that work effectively in organisations of all sizes and industries.

The class prepares you to
■ Partner with the business
Describe how the partnership between the business and HR can lead to successful change initiatives

■ Explore the role of HR during change
Distinguish among the three different roles that HR can play, and consider how to use each one

■ Create an action plan
