A Blueprint for Effective Organisational Change

Tuesday, 12 December 2023 | 9:00 AM – 3:15 PM AEDT | Online

Training Overview

Overcoming fatigue and leading sustainable, lasting transformation

In today’s rapidly evolving public sector, where governments are under immense pressure to deliver quick and effective change, success in transformation is more crucial than ever. A recent survey by McKinsey highlights the challenges faced by public sector leaders, with nearly 80 percent of major change initiatives falling short of their objectives. Effective change management is vital for the triumph of any reform, policy implementation, or service enhancement.

However, implementing change remains a global challenge for organisations, even though successful change management is linked to improved employee engagement, well-being, and performance. When executed proficiently, it can enhance competitiveness, productivity, innovation, and foster a positive work environment. This interactive workshop is designed to identify the key factors influencing change and uncover the unique characteristics of your organisational culture that can influence change outcomes.

Who Should Attend

This workshop has been developed for heads, directors, managers, leads, advisors, and specialist, in charge of transforming all three levels of government, including:

Organisational Change and Development

Change Management and Transformation

Continuous Improvement and Reform

Learning Outcomes
