Change Management: The Four Levels of the Change Process Model

11:37 am in Berytech News, Entrepreneurship, General by Tania Saba Mazraani

Change and evolution go hand in hand: The faster the evolution, the faster the change. In the current turbulent business environment, a need for evolution and adaptation has emerged. Over the last decades, experience has shown us that change is a process to follow and not just an idea to implement.

To understand the dynamics of change, we are holding a workshop with Core Development that will take your through the four levels of the Change Process Model. It will also give us a deeper look into the core of a successful implementation: People. Equipped with new concepts, tools and techniques, participants will be able to go back and forge the changes needed in their organizations.
