    I am sure somebody on GD will know this.

    One of the questions on an application form i am filling in is

    Criterion 3 Leading and managing teams through change programmes.

    In layman's terms what is a change programme (i have googled it)?

    Once I get a good understanding what a change programme is I can relate it to my past work experience.

    somebody decides to change a way of working,
    staff need hand holding in case they panic over the changes

    say, your company was taken over and you had to adapt to the new idiots way of doing stuff.

    another stupid management buzzword for doing your job really
