Within the aviation industry the need for sustainable change is becoming more and more impera-tive. Change is in fact something being imposed on the industry from a number of sources (e.g Upcoming Regulations, increasing commercial pressure and the introduction of new technologies) and the need for change management skills and capability within organisations is increasing.
