Managing Change and Surviving to Talk About It

Tuesday, November 8, 2022 -
6:30pm to 8:00pm

Join us for our November IIBA Portland Metro Chapter Event


Project, Program and PMO Mangers are in the business of improving the organization they work for. This improvement often leads to the need to change the organization, a department or some people’s job.

The major points to be covered include:

  • Understanding the need
  • Why it is important to make a change
  • Visioning the future
  • Differences between individuals and groups
  • Issues, roadblocks and pitfalls
  • Foundations for success
  • Profiling: advocates and detractors
  • Building buy‐in
  • Continuous feedback
  • Tips and tricks
  • How to know when you are "Done"

While most project professionals are taught how to run a project from kick‐off to lessons learned many either are unaware or struggle with the side effect of the culture change that follows the deployment of most enterprise level projects. This presentation will key in on how to survive the aftermath of your Go‐live.
