Managing change

Change is a key part of a manager’s and a leader’s role, which is why Staff Learning and Development, alongside the Project Management Office, launched Change Management Essentials. It focuses on effective change management and covers leading, delivering and experiencing change, and includes a Change Management Handbook.
