Change Management: A Critical Skill That Every Project Manager Needs to be Successful *THIS SESSION IS FULL*

More than 70% of all major transformation efforts fail. Why? Because organizations do not take a consistent, holistic approach to changing themselves, nor do they engage their workforces effectively. As project managers, it is critical that you understand how to successfully lead and manage change. In this session, we will review the Kotter framework for change management and then leverage activities, discussions and sharing of experiences to better understand how to successfully apply it in the real world. “Change is the only constant in life” -Heraclitus
