- The benefits of successfully managing change in your organization are substantial. As you manage larger and more ambitious change initiatives, your chances of running into cultural and organizational problems increases. Your overall success can depend upon your ability to proactively identify and manage these problems. I hope you find the recommendations in this course helpful. However, change management is a broad and ambitious undertaking, so there's always more you can learn.
Here are some other resources you might find helpful. First, there's the Change Management Institute. They've published a change management body of knowledge that can be obtained from their website. They also hold events throughout the world, so check those out. The schedule's on their website, as well. The Harvard Business Review has published a great compilation of change management wisdom called HBR's 10 Must Reads on Change Management by the Harvard Business Review. There are articles on leading change, persuasion, and a leadership survival guide during change, along with other useful items.
You can also check out Managing Change in Organizations: A Practice Guide, published by the Project Management Institute. This book takes the concepts I've discussed in this course and puts them in the context of managing change as a program of work. Last, a book I reference often is ADKAR: A Model for Change in Business, Government and Our Community by Jeffrey M. Hiatt. ADKAR stands for awareness, desire, knowledge, ability and reinforcement.
Sounds like a great recipe for successful change, doesn't it? I hope you've enjoyed this course and continue to expand your knowledge and experiences in management organizational change. The benefits it can bring to you personally, professionally and in the community are significant.
