Council on Change Management

The rapid rate of change and increased complexity in markets, customers, products, and services is making it almost impossible to keep up, let alone stay ahead, in business. Combined with the emergence of unimaginable competition, the frequency and pace of change required to thrive in the global marketplace has reached a point where it impacts everything. We need to be able to change swiftly in order to solve new problems faster, accelerate innovation, and get our products and services to market faster. If we do this, we outperform the competition.

This council helps leaders leverage their collective experience to meet these challenges head on. Our mission is to advance the practice of change management by creating new thought leadership and developing capabilities for extraordinary performance.

We focus on change management challenges in business transformation and renewal, global reorganization, and employee engagement. These business needs will drive our research, collaboration and application in the following areas:

  • Change management assessment & strategy development, sponsorship and stakeholder alignment 
  • Change management programs for adoption and implementation of new business processes & practices, new leadership and workforce competencies and social technologies
  • Coaching & facilitation of behavioral change

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships are the cornerstone of the Councils experience. The Council is member-driven and focused on practical application. Confidential peer dialogue combines broader perspective, specific knowledge, and shared experience to save you precious time and public missteps. We also engage with thought leaders from academia and research sectors.
