Herding Cats – Successfully Managing Change

Description

Projects are judged by the impact they have on the organization and for the majority of projects that impact is going to be hugely dependent on behavioral changes of people. And getting people to change is hard. In fact, resistance to change is often cited by leaders as the biggest obstacle to making organizational improvements.

Why is change so hard?  And more importantly, as Project Leaders, what can we do to make it easier? 

This workshop will look at how differing perspectives can challenge our efforts to affect change and what we can do to put ourselves, our projects, and our organizations in the best position for success.
