The MERIT process demonstrates how the leadership team can develop the type of values that become the support structure of a culture that aligns with that vision, mission and strategy, to faciliate the implementation of the overall vision. Used by some of the leading companies in North America, this process studies the ten-key elements that unleash the changes necessary to create the alignment within the organization, and should be attended by the leaders and managers that need to create and support the new culture. This program may be conducted over two or three days, depending on the requirements and size of an organization. \n\nChange Management\n\nWe live in an ever changing business climate where new techniques, technologies and strategies are common day in the marketplace.
