Executing Strategic Change

This course prepares you with fundamental change management frameworks, concepts and models.  You will learn how to apply these models along with other key topics to several real world case studies that bring the theories to life.  By the end of the course, you'll know what makes strategic change successful and what hinders it, or causes it to fail.  You'll be able to apply a practitioner lens to many different organizational contexts.
