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.
