This course helps change agents tasked with leading change across multiple countries or leaders who must create or support a change across a global team. In this course we use the Change Equation to identify the concepts necessary for successful global change. We then discuss steps related to the first change factor of moving people out of the comfort of the status quo.
We identify the steps necessary to create dissatisfaction with the current state and openness to the change you are recommending. We then discuss the implications when working across multiple countries including tolerance for change, getting actual agreement vs. just articulating agreement, expected speed of change, and other dimensions of culture. We then discuss how to determine if your conditions are right to move forward and how to remove common barriers.
Although each course may be taken individually, this is part 1 of a 3 part course.
