Will Wood Sells E-Learning for Training: A Case of Successful Change Implementation

After being promoted to head of a messy division, Will Wood used careful change planning, considerable influence skill and some calculated maneuvering to implement e-learning, a more effective training tool. But in order to do it successfully, he had to overcome skepticism and tight budgets. Some of the principles he practiced include:

  • Offering a vision of how change would increase efficiency 
  • Building credibility through better performance 
  • Tailoring his interaction style to build key relationships 
  • Preparing for the political implications of the change he initiated
