Many studies have reported a high failure rate for change initiatives – typically around 70%. Here’s some good news: recently released research captured over 16 years reveals that projects are six times more likely to meet objectives when organizations manage the people side of change effectively.
How can you use your past experiences in navigating change to position you, your teams and organizations to be in the elite 30% who succeed?
UT Dallas Corporate Education invites you to join us for our next Executive Briefing featuring Sandy Schwan. Sandy is an adjunct faculty member at UT Dallas as well as the managing partner of Evolving Strategies LLC, a consulting firm helping people and companies learn, lead and change. Clients include Northern Trust Corporation, United Airlines, Thomson Reuters, IDEX Corporation, Hillenbrand International, the United States federal government, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Spencer Stuart, Worth and Accenture. Sandy recently concluded three years serving as adjunct faculty in Northwestern University’s Master of Science – Learning and Organizational Change Program, where she coached senior leaders from Kraft, Motorola, Baxter, Humana and Microsoft on leading change successfully.
