Organizations are continuously challenged to change and adapt to a business environment that is constantly evolving.

But the prescriptions offered by conventional change management theory are more outdated than ever. This webinar challenges core assumptions of conventional change management theory, including the following:

  • Successful change initiatives start at the top.
  • There is no such thing as too much communication.
  • Employees are resistant to change.
  • Rewards and punishment help overcome this resistance.

Carsten will then discuss some big ideas by bold thinkers that help us envision change management in new ways. Organizations can apply the following concepts to create change-friendly environments:

  • The concept of human agency
  • Human-centered design
  • Co-creative organizational change
  • Using gentle nudges to change organizations
  • A leadership model for inclusive and continuous change
  • Social networks and the diffusion of change
  • Framing the change we want to see in the world
