Talent Triangle Alignment

Leadership

Learning Outcomes

  • Define the Project Manager’s role in change
  • Explore key change moments that matter for project managers and how they can best support change
  • Gain learning and tools to put into immediate practice!

Presentation Overview

A recent Gallup study identified 2 of the 3 major reasons organizational projects fail (technical, individual and stakeholder) are related to people or change factors. Often times, organizations rely solely on the change professional to address these factors. In this engaging hands-on session, we make the case for why project managers need to be personally invested in organizational change in their project efforts. Participants learn how to position change as absolutely essential to project success as well as how to engage project managers to help action critical change moments that matter that have a significant impact on project success. Participants walk away with practical learning that can immediately be applied to enhance any project professional's toolkit!
