Evolutionary or Revolutionary Change 

Which is best for Japan today?

Organisations have always had to face the forces for change, and change management and its focus on the ‘people side of change’ is a critical component for helping organisations in their transformations.  However, past success in evolutionary changes is no guarantee of future survival when organisations are facing ever more complex and unpredictable forces  to change.  

In today’s world, Japan’s organisations must face up to dramatic disruption from all directions and be able to respond accordingly – the question is if the approach should be one of evolution or revolution  and how change management should adapt accordingly?

Key Learning Objectives:

  • The need for change in the world of business
  • The concept of Change Management in ‘managing the people side of change’
  • The role of Japanese management practices in the field of Change Management
  • The increasing urgency and pace of change in today's world
  • Blending Change Management approaches and practices for both evolutionary and revolutionary change
  • How Japanese organizations must develop the capability for revolutionary changes - starting with the 7Cs of Change

Who Should Attend?

With its focus on managing the people side of changes, Change Management is a critical concept for organisations in this ever changing world. It is of particular importance to the following professions:

  • HR professionals
  • Transformation professionals
  • Business Leaders
