Developing a Unified Approach for Managing People, Projects, and Change
Truly successful project managers do not just manage projects well, but help to ensure that their projects create value for the organization. However, in PMI’s 2014 Pulse of the Profession, research shows that organizations face a wide chasm between their actual state and the state of success, mostly due to a lack of focus on people, processes and outcomes. While project management processes help to increase the chance of project success, they are often times insufficient when developing plans to address people, processes and the necessary organizational changes that facilitates value creation. The keys to achieving true project success requires augmenting each of the 10 Knowledge Areas found in the PMBOK® Guide with tools and techniques from the field of organizational change management. In this content-rich webinar, popular PMI® instructor Thomas Luke Jarocki (author of the recently published PMI White Paper on “Project and Change Management in the PMBOK® Guide) will delve into each of the 10 Knowledge Areas within the PMBOK® Guide. He will demonstrate how practical tools and techniques from the field of organizational change management can be utilized to enhance each of these Knowledge Areas so that project managers can develop a unified, comprehensive solution to managing people, projects, and organizational change. As PMI’s 2013 “Managing Change in Organizations” Practice Guide states: “From stakeholder management to communications to human resources management, elements of change management appear throughout PMI’s foundational standards but are not specifically identified as the phrase ‘change management.’” Come register and partake in this provocative webinar that finally makes the logical connection between project management and change management.
