The Berlin Wall came down and no one worried about leadership alignment. Entrenched dictators were felled in the Arab Spring without a communication plan. The Chinese computer upstart, Lenovo, implemented a successful global business transformation using the same change management methods that fail on most projects.
Today’s business leaders face big shift challenges including disruptive global competitors, new technology like cloud, social and mobile and big data opportunities. Traditional Change Management is often a meager lifeboat amidst this tsunami of change. Change that works shares one common denominator: Great Change DNA.
Barbara Shannon will share the Three Essentials of Great Change DNA, plus the one thing every Change Leader MUST DO, along with real examples and stories from her global transformation projects. In addition to the free products in Barbara’s online change management Toolbox, participants will receive a bound copy of the Business Transformation DNA booklet, a step-by-step summary of the essential elements of successful change projects.
Join us at the June BACN meeting to learn
- A new and current way of viewing business transformation in the context of Big Shift times
- Three essentials of great corporate change
- Five big change Gotchas to avoid before they happen
Attendees will have the opportunity to pre-order Barbara’s book, The DNA of Great Corporate Change: Essentials of Successful Business Transformation.
