WU Researcher of the Month
Public Lecture of the Department for Strategy & Innovation
Businesses today are operating in an increasingly dynamic environment that requires constant change. A central challenge for managers is to get the change right. If the change happens too quickly it often overburdens organizations and their employees, while a change that happens too slowly increases the risk of losing touch with the competition.
When is courageous intervention too fast? When is standstill better than a gentle adjustment? Which speed in the management of change is optimal? Experienced manager Sabine Herlitschka and two WU representatives discuss examples of actions that happen too fast and too slow in different industries and from different perspectives and discuss the practical aspects of the strategic timing of change.
