The Governance of change culture
The pace of change is accelerating, and companies, public authorities and people must change in order to respond effectively. Yet 50 to 75% of digital adaptation programs fail.
Those that implement change effectively give themselves and their organization a significant competitive edge by focusing on the factors that are essential to success.
Changing, reforming, transforming an institution is a complex matter. States and non-state actors are facing increasing challenges to make change happen. Adopting innovative reforms to respond to social demands is no longer enough; governments and businesses need to accompany their reform proposals with a strategy to manage change. How the change is managed dictates to a large extent, the success or failure of a reform initiative.
Because nothing is constant except change, 4P provides a wide range of training and seminars for both institutions and individuals to help you keep up with the pace of development.
4P supports you in your task of building, integrating and sustaining your digital change culture with the best training on international practices— so that you decide on, implement and keep control of your digital footprint.
The key factors in managing change *
Having a strong, trusted and committed leadership is a key determinant for making reform happen (i.e. the Public Sector Reform Initiatives in South-East Asia, New Employment Policies in Britain).
Leadership is a key factor in reducing resistance to change (i.e. the Public Sector Reform Initiatives in South- East Asia, the New Zealand Treasury reform)
An effective leadership means obtaining people’s commitment through persuasion, negotiation and being able to influence their values and culture (i.e. New Employment Policies in Britain).
Although values are difficult to change, it is possible to give another meaning to what is valued and, in that way, transforming organisational culture (i.e. the New Zealand Treasury reform).
Leadership development strategies are essential for public sector leaders as they prepare to take up their roles.
