Managing change can be very challenging and normally is quite complex. It is one of the most difficult things to do in an organization, and yet, it can be one of the most rewarding.

In general, it is never easy to deal with change of any kind and successfully navigating change often requires understanding how pieces balance and impact one another.
We will share ideas on:

* Key pitfalls to look out for
