Who Is In Charge of Change?
Is there some confusion in your changing organization about who is actually in charge of all the projects? Is the Project Office or Middle Management? Perhaps it should be Human Resources or the Communication Department? Or is it the Senior Executives or the internal/external Change Management Professionals? If there is some confusion, you are not alone. Many organizations are challenged by the roles required to ensure changes are successful and who needs to be clearly in charge. This engaging and highly practical session will examine the various roles required to ensure your organization can successfully lead a constant flow of projects and determine where true ownership belongs. Building on a holistic model for leading constant change, we will assess how well your organization is currently doing at clarifying who actually is in charge. Learning Outcomes: 1. Examine the critical ownership roles for leading constant change. 2. Assess how well your organization is currently fulfilling each of these roles. 3. Outline a plan to improve project ownership in your organization.
