WEBINAR: Beyond Change Management

Tuesday, December 15, 2009
11:30am – 1pm

About the webinar Coming Soon!
Whole System Transformation Journey

Why do a majority of change management efforts fail? Hint: Today change is created in a closet and ‘rolled out’ to the organization but it doesn’t stick. Our speakers will present the latest research on what organizations need to respond to change, innovation, globalization and chaos. They will then provide a roadmap for going beyond traditional change management to Whole System Transformation (WST). WST naturally addresses organizational needs for change and, in all cases, WST has succeeded. Attendees will come away from this presentation with an understanding of the importance of creating an integrated, sustainable journey led by internal resources that engage the entire organization including establishing mutual influence and alignment between the top, middle and bottom of the organization. Finally, the speakers will apply the whole system transformation to a case study.

Attendees are encouraged to submit their situation for review during the session. We will discuss the cases and work together to come up with real solutions. (Email your contact information and details about your situation in advance to We will generate as many questions as we can about the situation. Questions left unasnwered during the session will be answered offline by the speakers and made available to all attendees. Attendees will also be provided access to selective chapters from the new, just released, 3rd edition of Practicing Organization Development: A Consultant’s Guide, customized resources that respond directly to the questions generated during the session, and proprietary videos on organizational transformation.
