A change tool has been launched by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development to help with the challenge of organizational transformation.

Change and re-organisation presents a range of challenges and the Institute has developed a collection of practical aids, focusing on change, re-organisation and the role of HR professionals.

The tool allows users to think through the issues affecting their organisation, with diagnostic exercises and checklists to complete. It is designed to help HR generalists and others who are working with them to develop change management capability and support their staff in coping with a planned disruptive change.

The new tool draws on current thinking and includes up-to-date examples of good practice from a range of case studies.

The tool allows users to expand their knowledge and skills on concepts and applications of approaches to organisational change, provides a seven-step flexible framework for understanding organisational change.
