Organisations need to adapt and change at an ever-faster pace. Even in an environment of automation, successful change relies on people to deliver it. Change is disruptive but effective HR solutions can ease the process. This book considers how HR can effectively support and facilitate change, rather than be an obstacle to leaders’ ambitions. We take the reader through the stages of the change cycle, consider common change theories and methodology as well as the role of different contributors, placing emphasis on the safe and the long-term sustainable achievement of meaningful changes.
