Enterprise organizations often go through change management processes for a variety of reasons: mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, new leadership, technology implementations, organizational restructuring, and regulatory compliance. A proactive approach to change is essential to ensure its success and alignment with business objectives, and to truly unleash talent potential as competitive advantage.
