Change is the one constant in our rapidly evolving environment, and organizations and individuals need to be nimble if they are to thrive on today’s rapidly shifting platforms. Whether the change involved is the introduction of a new system or policy, the re-organization of a department, the introduction of a new way of doing business or responding to a new policy, successful change is driven by a vision, implemented with the introduction of appropriate processes and systems, and supported with clear and consistent direction and communication. Having led small and large organizations through a variety of change processes, Sankofa’s team understands that change is both organizational and personal, and provides a comprehensive, systematic path to support effective change for organizations and the people who make the organization happen.
