Promoting Quality Principles and Practices thru Organization Change Management

Scott Stribrny

About the Topic

Change is something companies must do if they are to survive and compete in today’s business world. The successful management of change using a project-based intervention is crucial for any organization to succeed in the highly competitive and evolving global business environment.

For many, expensive flaws persist in their approach to change. This presentation examines effective models of change along with key operating assumptions worth understanding. Organizational readiness for change varies as a function of how much members of an organization value the change, and how favorably they appraise three key determinants of implementation capability: task demands, resource availability, and situational factors.

This presentation will describe both successful and unsuccessful efforts to bring about large-scale change and will provide a cogent illustration of the various interventions that lead to success.

Key Learning Objectives
  • How to assess readiness for change including organizational members' shared resolve to implement a change (change commitment)
  • How to assess members’ shared belief in their collective capability to implement a change (change efficacy)
  • Reliable operating assumptions about dealing with change, and how to apply them
  • Approaches for dealing with change, and how to recognize and choose among them
