ADAPT®: Applying a Structured Approach to Change

Leading the Evolution of your Organization to Fit its Changing Environment

You can be a victim of change or the leader of change. Anyhow, the organization of today will not fit the needs of tomorrow anymore. Economic cycles, market changes, adapting regulations, volatility of customers, aggressive competition are only a few of the drivers of change. Organizations trying to stand firm are doomed to explode one day, changing to rapidly is a hazard too.
Managing change is full of risk. Changing needs a lot of energy to end up into an unknown situation. Therefore, it is utterly important to consider profoundly your change approach and to search for guidance with sound change frameworks.
This course offers a unique insight in ADAPT® for managing the evolution of an organization. Participants will learn to manage the lifecycle of change, with the tools and techniques that can be used to assess the current state of an organization and plan for its future state that will be in line with the evolved context.
