There are few guarantees in the workplace today. However, change is one of them. More than ever, organizations and their environments are in a state of flux; streamlining processes, upgrading technologies, introducing new products and competing in a global market. In some cases these changes are planned, in others they are unplanned. Sometimes the forces for change are internal to the organization, sometimes they are caused by external conditions. The need for an organization and its people to meet and cope with change requires employees to be competent in dealing with and managing change.
