It is clearly recognised and acknowledged that in today's business environment, all organisations operate in a perpetual state of change. Organisations that fail to address the necessity for regular review and assessment of their operational and financial effectiveness will over a period of time, at worst, fail to thrive.

Change can affect a business in many different ways and regardless of what type of change that may be, adequate management and leadership skills will be required to overcome the challenges intrinsic in change.
Crucial to any change within a business is a competent blend of management and leadership. Management, in short, will ensure the people and technology within the business run efficiently and effectively. Managers will plan, budget, organise and control. Leaders on the other hand will create vision, motivate and create the very systems that managers can manage ensuring there is inbuilt allowance for evolution. Essentially, a business requires the right mix of Managers and Leaders.
Organisations are likely in need to improve their ability to change but organisations can increase their chances of success by adopting the appropriate culture and attaining the appropriate guidance.
