Successfully Managing Instability and Transformation
Chances, challenges, and change: How managers and project leaders can use the latest findings from organizational psychology to bring about effective transformation.
How can organizations be analyzed, diagnosed and systematically influenced? Successful change management always is a matter of making the right assumptions and choosing the right approaches. We draw on the latest research findings and our own experience working with leading large and medium-sized enterprises to impart fresh know-how on managing change. We elucidate and discuss current change management methodologies, and highlight practical criteria for defining the most suitable approach in any given situation. After the seminar, participants will have a reliable overview and a good understanding of state-of-the-art change management solutions.

Contents

Patterns of change
Typical laws of behavior governing change in living, complex systems. Transfer to different situations. Findings from natural sciences and systems research, experience and know-how from organizational development. Optimizing and innovating 

The most important change philosophies
Every change methodology has specific benefits and boundaries. What intercultural challenges lie in change? How can change project teams be build and led, and on the basis of what skills and tools?

Shaping instability
Handling complex dynamics. Building systems skills: consciously creating a balance between stability and instability. Breaking patterns. From instruction and coaching to moderating instability. 

Situation analysis
Benchmarking and corporate change can trigger important change, but are a delicate topic. Innovative methods are needed to capture the initial situation and diagnose the departments and functions affected. Only this type of diagnosis enables you to implement effective training measures – even with virtual or distributed teams (distant leadership).

Leading and supporting change
What are the reasons for success or failure? If you want to win over people and keep them on board, you have to understand them and the way they behave. Participants will learn how to detect values, symbols, cultures, rituals and artifacts in their own organization or department.

Influencing systems, overcoming blocks
How can you intervene in systems as a change agent and ensure they develop goal-oriented? You have to identify barriers and blocks, and set up the interplay of forces critical to success. What methods can be used to reanimate jammed or gridlocked processes while avoiding falling back into old patterns?

Communication in change processes
There’s no change without dialogue: good changers know how to plan communication, involve management systems, think in terms of feedback cycles, and ensure that change is monitored. They are also fair and respectful when dealing with the losers, retaining their credibility and humanity.
