This webinar will draw on research and practice to suggest practical answers.

Since many change management activities are anchored and/or triggered by project events, it is critical to properly integrate change management practices into the overall project life cycle. This means going beyond simply having distinct change management activities included on the project schedule, but instead finding the critical interdependencies and joint opportunities that exist between project management and change management. This will not only help to ensure that the right activities take place with the right people at the right time, but also serves to create a more unified and streamlined approach towards achieving total project success
Most projects fail because the people resist change. Recognizing this, project managers are exploring how to integrate more assessments, activities, and artifacts designed to overcome resistance. In this webinar you will discover what the research tells us about why projects fail and the top contributors to successful projects. We will review some examples of the activities and artifacts commonly integrated into project plans. This will include the five most effective levers for driving sponsor and stakeholder engagement.

This webinar will provide you with suggestions on how to visualize change management within your project and provide multiple examples for the audience to identify with and emulate for greater success in the future.
