  • Modern Change Dynamics: We’ve included a high-level timeline of how change management has evolved, blending technology, empathy, and agile practices to meet today’s organizational challenges. In the most recent evolution of thinking, an increased emphasis is placed on the human or people aspect that goes beyond mere business processes.
