Limited Capacity filling up

Change management in the corporate world means redirecting resources, adapting processes and preparing employees to reshape how the company succeeds. In some cases, this may even mean ending a product or service that is no longer competitive. As the opera field looks to address new priorities, how can company leaders reflect on what has been learned to let go of the old and welcome the new? Learn from OPERA America’s own organizational changes, and hear from other company leaders about the process of creating strategic renewal.
