The Institute of Human Resource Management Practitioners (IHRMP) has organized a two-day workshop on Change Management as part of its efforts to build the capacity of the country’s human resource.
The two-day workshop, which was themed: ‘Change Management- A key to Competitive and Sustainable Business,’ was aimed at equipping participants with techniques to enhance the effectiveness of Change Initiatives in their individual organizations.
The workshop, which was held at the HR Centre in Nyaniba Estates, Accra, attracted 25 participants who are senior executives, heads of departments and HR professionals from different organizations in the public and private sectors of the country.
John Wilson, President of IHRMP, in his opening speech, said 70 percent of change projects fail because change was treated as an event and not a process requiring planning, implementation and monitoring.
He introduced participants to the Change Acceleration Process (CAP) model of managing change which he said was a superior Change Management methodology.
Mr. Wilson explained that effective change was a function of both the Change Project and Acceptance from the people it impacts.
He therefore stressed the need to identify all stakeholders, create the shared need and obtain acceptance of the desired change before implementing change.
The two-day workshop was a very practical and interactive session, and participants shared practical change examples from their organizations.
They were tasked to design change projects using the CAP tools that they had learnt.
The participants, at the end of the two-day session, noted that as change agents, they were adequately equipped with skills to plan, implement, monitor and sustain change in their various organizations.
