Next-Generation Change Management and Transformation: How to Be a Changemaker with Jack Duggal

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this training, learners will be able to: 

  • Distinguish managing and leading change versus change making and describe how to develop next-generation change making skills for transformation and greater impact.
  • Discuss why change management success remains elusive, citing the latest research at the intersection of brain, biology, and behavior science.
  • Review and discuss a wide range of next-generation change management concepts, models, techniques, and tips for effective change management.


We are in the midst of unprecedented change in every sphere. The unforeseen and unexpected are happening at a faster pace, challenging traditional approaches in a post-pandemic world. Understanding and dealing with changes is critical, whether you are trying to successfully implement a project, program, or PMO initiatives; are involved in digital transformation or increasing product, process, or system adoption; or are struggling with changing your own or your team member’s behavior.  How do you develop change intelligence to anticipate, adopt, and adapt to change? How do you prepare and develop change readiness?

Change is the catalytic element in any organizational endeavor and is often the weak or missing link. Even though there are numerous change models and many approaches, change management success remains elusive and has not improved over the years. In this training, we will push the edge of traditional change management approaches and learn from the latest research at the intersection of brain, biology, and behavior science.

Delivering projects or initiatives is only half the battle. To win and achieve results and benefits from them, you should understand change and know that it is fundamentally human. You must learn to balance the logical with the biological, and process with behavior to see how you can focus on greater adoption and impact.



    • Understanding and Making Sense of Increasing Volatility and Change (Review and discuss the need to understand and make sense of today’s turbulent and Dynamic – Ambiguous – Nonlinear – Complex – Emergent (DANCE) environment.)

    • Need for New Insights and Perspectives (Discuss why change management success remains elusive. Examine the latest research and findings at the intersection of brain, biology, and behavior science.)
    • Balancing and Nurturing the Human Side of Change (Discuss how change is fundamentally human and how to balance and nurture the human aspects of change.)
    • Behavior Change Design (Identify behavior change principles and learn how to apply behavior change design.)
    • Assessing and Developing Change Intelligence (Assess organizational change intelligence and change-readiness strengths and weaknesses.) 
    • Change making (Distinguish managing and leading change versus change making and find out how to go beyond and develop change making skills for transformation and greater impact.) 
    • Tools, Techniques, and Tips (Review, compare, and discuss a wide range of change management concepts, models, techniques, and tips for effective change management.)
    • Leading Transformation (Discuss the key elements for leading effective digital transformation and other efforts.)
    • Applying the Principles (Test-drive and practice applying key learnings to a business case example and your own organizational context.)
    • Action Planning (Chart a personalized application action plan tailored to your goals and your organization’s needs.) 

Life-changing course! Jack did not disappoint; his ability to keep our group engaged and give us so many new techniques to bend our thinking around culture change management was just inspirational. I feel empowered and ready to take my learnings back to my organization as well apply my new tools in my personal life.

Really enjoyed the examples, stories, tools applicable to my job, different teaching methods, applicable exercises, and accountability for future connection.
