Business Transformation in Disguise by Jess Tayel

In the quest of uplifting capabilities, better serving our customers, improving the bottom line or acquiring market share, organizations have a mix of projects and programs to help achieve those business outcomes.

Change Management... What? by Luke Garner

System integration. Organisational restructures. Business mergers. These are things that happen every single day, in organisations all over the world. You’ve probably been the recipient in at least two of them.

A staggering statistic, however, is that upwards of 70% of these changes in business do not go as well as the vision behind them – they either fail, run drastically over budget or do not deliver the anticipated benefi­ts. 70%.
