On 19th July, over 100 publishers will meet at St Bride Foundation off Fleet Street to discuss how to deal with change at work. One of the panellists is John Pettigrew, Founder of Futureproofs. Here are some of this thoughts ahead of the event.
1) Why do you think that organisations resist change?
2) How might you get all stakeholders on-board before initiating change?
3) What are the best communication channels for delivering change initiatives?
All of them. However the organisation normally communicates, use those channels for discussing change – email, memos, meetings, blogs, newsletters, whatever. But most important of all is face-to-face conversations.
