Delivering change in waterfall and agile

In the world of change initiatives, we are always bound by time whilst simultaneously wrestling uncertainty. Do these two things affect how we manage change?
Are the actions we take different when using either waterfall or an agile approach to delivery within a change initiative?

You are invited to join our 2nd session in a collaboration series between the APM and the Change Management Institute exploring how we practitioners work more closely together to realise project outcomes and benefits.

In this interactive session we will examine how our change management thinking and actions adapt dependent on which delivery approach we adopt.
