Change can derail business, but that’s because leaders have been managing it using faulty assumptions and outdated models. Today’s wealth of data and analytics capabilities make it possible to employ new, quantitative approaches to managing change. Instead of relying on business intuition, which can be faulty, leaders can base their decisions on hard data—namely, the experiences of nearly 1 million people who have undergone change initiatives. Such analyses enable leaders to better navigate around dangerous pitfalls.

This session will explore how an analytics-based approach is changing old assumptions and dramatically improving the success rates of transformation programs.

Who should attend: C-suite executives, senior to mid-levels, consultants and analysts in change management, organization development/effectiveness, talent management, and leadership development
