Organisational Restructuring and Change Management

Change is inevitable and all businesses are operating in a constant state of flux. In order to be successful, you have to keep on adapting to changes. Whether you’re a growing startup or an established company, you will require an organisational restructure at some point. External market conditions and consumer trends evolve so quickly that companies cannot afford to do ‘business as usual’. If you want to be successful or even survive, you need to have a strategy for change management and organisational restructuring in place.


Join our panel of experts at this CFO Talks session, as they discuss the following points:
  • What are the external reasons that your company would consider restructuring?
  • What are the internal signs that your company needs to restructure?
  • What are the common obstacles to restructuring?
  • How do you plan the restructuring process?
  • How do you deal with employee resistance to change?
  • How do you measure the success of your restructuring and change management programme?
