Conventional wisdom holds that 70% of all major organizational change efforts fail.* While not all of these initiatives are centered on process and information improvement, it is generally accepted that a similar number of these kinds of projects also do not meet expectations – often despite the expenditure of large quantities of time and money.

In most cases, this failure reflects the fact that little attention is paid to the people a given project is intended to benefit, who frequently are left feeling that it is being done to them rather than for them. Instead, organizations tend to blame the technology, and when they discover that it works so well that there are no significant problems to be solved, they simply walk away and leave tons of potential value on the table.

Holly Group’s professional enrichment program Change Management & Information Governance helps you avoid this unhappy outcome by illuminating the current best practices for assessing, managing, and modifying corporate culture, transforming organizational behavior, and rolling out new solutions that will be both readily embraced and highly effective.
