EPIC Change & Transformation™

How to Lead Change in the Global Age.



Management &



Organizations must constantly change and adapt to stay competitive. This means that managers at all levels must be able to lead change initiatives from inception to completion--anytime, anywhere. Yet leading change is not an intuitive skill. Strikingly, 75% of organizational change initiatives fail to meet their original objectives.

EPIC Change and Transformation™ teaches leaders change management as an applied discipline. The course provides participants with the most advanced, research-based, and field-tested methodology to lead organizational change at every level of the organization. Participants identify the most important change initiatives they are currently working on and complete a change roadmap for a specific initiative. They apply a structured process (including tools, behavior, and skills) to help them lead change at the personal, team, and organizational levels for each of the EPIC stages.
