Change management is changing: what does Enterprise Change Management mean to the project profession?

Arup, Arup Campus, Blythe Gate, Blythe Valley Park, Solihull, West Midlands, B90 8AE

Enterprise Change Management is one of the hot topics of 2019. This event will look at what it is, what it isn’t and how it might affect our working environments and our careers.

“Enterprise-wide change management has taken on new relevance and importance…With the prevalence and frequency of change, we are seeing a decentralisation of change management officers, and a shift to spread this skill set across the business".[1]

This new enterprise-wide approach to organisational change impacts the traditional cultures and approaches of project and programme management, business change management and those shaping and leading change.

There are a number of questions for those of us working in relevant professions, including:

  • What are the drivers for Enterprise Change Management and how might it continue to evolve over the coming years?
  • How do we best adapt our skills to stay relevant and successful in light of this current thinking?
  • How do we continue to add value in our roles if the wider organisational approach to change is changing?
  • Is this an aspirational, short-term trend, or will it really make an impact to our world of work?

This event will:

  • Explore how traditional views of business change are being challenged in the era of Enterprise Change Management.
  • Examine the desired mindset, behaviours and skills behind the new approach.
  • Explore the realities of moving organisations to this new way of working.
  • Discuss how this new approach will enhance or challenge the project and programme management profession.

We can’t promise to give you all the answers, but you can expect a lively evening of challenge, discussion and a few refreshments to fuel your brain!
