Getting used to change: exploring the impact, effects and implementation of change
Although we are used to anticipating and planning for change, sometimes change is unexpected. This week’s daily webinars will focus on those components of MyLeadership that help build change readiness.
Projects are a familiar part of organisational life and it is predicted that organising activities around projects will become more prevalent. This webinar introduces the important topic of project management and what is needed to make sure projects run well.
