Change management is a challenging and continuous process that requires a particular skill set for both leaders and managers. It is essential for leaders and change agents to understand and address the five most important questions: Why? What? Who? How? When? Inside, you’ll learn the concept of change management, its impact on the company’s business performance and sustainability, and the relevant issues associated with it.
