Change Management

Walt Disney once said “Change is inevitable, growth is optional.” As supply chain managers facing an ever-changing world, we need to be able to quickly implement new services and/or processes to service the customer. Wouldn’t it be ideal to have a method to think through the change, anticipate peoples’ reactions to the change, and have the tools necessary for helping people see the value and embrace the change?

CSCMP has designed a workshop that takes you through the inevitable process of change management. Learn how to successfully implement change in your business. Leaders, by definition, have to fit into the situations they’re dealing with:

  • What change is inevitable in my business?
  • What are the consequences if my company doesn’t change?
  • How do I start the process of change?
  • How are my people reacting to new systems and processes?
  • Do I have the necessary tools to facilitate the change?
  • How do I profit from the changes?
