Why is change in organisations so often difficult and even unsuccessful? 

The answer is situations that we’re dealing with are often more complex than they seem at first. In this webinar, Michael Shiel, Programme Director of Executive Master in Change, will explore the two main sources of complexity: people and organisations, and explain how we can work successfully with these two areas.
