Presentation Details
Seldom are the conditions optimal for implementing change, even when it is strategic and opportunistic in nature. Organizational dynamics (as well as the change initiative itself) are too complex for the timing to ever be “just right”. As Business Analysts specializing in Business Process Management, it’s easy to assume that your role would have limited impact on the organizational change readiness. Quite the contrary! As we know from well-documented research, Change Agents take on various forms and no matter how directly involved, can be highly influential in supporting the readiness requirements for future change . . . from creating awareness and desire for change to promoting its benefits and preparing stakeholders to successfully adapt and function within their changed environment. In order to optimize an organization’s “change readiness”, there are fundamental concepts that you need to know as well as competencies that you will want to cultivate in the area of Organizational Change Management (OCM).

During the presentation, attendees will learn:

1. Critical readiness checks that ideally, should be implemented before giving the “green light” on any Organizational Change

2. Change Agent strategies for optimizing Stakeholders’ response to change, no matter what the change readiness conditions are

3. OCM best practices such as strategic communications, change leadership, stakeholder engagement and resistance management
