Change Management (Part 1): The Key to Successful Project Implementation

This webinar introduces foundational level change management principles, tools and techniques considered essential to support the behavioural change needed to implement successful projects. This webinar is featured as the first of a two-part webinar series.

In most cases, an outcome of a project requires people to behave differently than they have in the past. Change is an alteration of an organisation’s environment, structure, technology or people.

Given ongoing change is today’s reality, your ability to plan, manage and reinforce change as part of your project will be the difference between a successful project or project failure.

Topics covered

  • Introduction to foundational level change management principles, tools and techniques essential to support the behavioural change needed to implement projects successfully.
  • Overview of what project managers need to consider from a change perspective, when setting up and establishing their projects

Who should attend?

The webinar is designed to assist new to change roles, project leadership or project teams, and anyone involved in projects where behavioural change is a key requirement to a project’s success. No knowledge of the topics is assumed; participants with prior experience may find the webinar useful to refresh and extend their knowledge.
