Seminar Description

What causes some projects to succeed while others fail? Many times, it's how the project handles the people side of change. This seminar helps you develop skills to confidently apply organizational change management principles, methodologies and tools.
 
You’ll learn “The Eight Constants of Change” which provides principles and tips on how to lead, manage and influence others during change. The constants cover effective strategies for stakeholder management, executive alignment, communication effectiveness and sustainability.
 
You’ll receive The Change Management Pocket Guide, the popular methodology and tools used on thousands of projects. We’ll review the Plan, Do, and Sustain phases found in this book and explore nearly twenty tools.
 
This seminar is taught by trainers experienced in using these methodology and tools on numerous projects in a variety of industries. As experienced consultants, they provide real client examples, help you apply the tools to your own projects, and encourage sharing of challenges and successes.

What You Will Learn

  • Identify and understand the “Eight Constants of Change” and how they impact projects
  • Relate the “Plan, Do, Sustain” methodology and tools to project planning
  • Engage stakeholders and leaders in championing the change by adapting tools such as the Stakeholder Assessment and Leader Involvement Plan
  • Frame and communicate the business change in a way that is strategic and stakeholder specific using tools such as the Key Message Worksheet
  • Apply tools that assess the effectiveness of organizational change management strategies, resulting in improvements in stakeholder planning.
  • Use resistance as feedback and create strategies for dealing with concerns, issues and rumors
