As the market heats up and the complexity of doing business continues to increase, individuals and organizations are seeking insights that might help them simplify things. In the past, things were simpler, and everything revolved around profit, process, product, etc. Prior to the pandemic, organizations focused 80 – 90% on running the business and 10-20% on changing how they do business. In less than 5 years, management focus will be 30% on running the business and 70% on changing the way they do business.

This webinar will discuss key measures for successful change management that flow from leading change through uncertainties.

Influence is a critical component of leveraging effective partnerships and increasing engagement and enablement for our projects and the change they deliver. The challenge we are faced with, that we will look to solve in this webinar, is to more easily identify, build and support our organizational influencers to make them a vital part of project delivery.
