On Tuesday 17th November, the Enabling Change SIG welcomed delegates in London to an event looking to simplify some of the complexity associated with transitioning a programme, organisation or culture from the current state to the desired future state – using change management.
It was a chance to:
- look at the work that has been done by the Enabling Change SIG
- understand the need and context of change in programmes
- review the structured approaches available
- provide input into (and influence future focus of) industry best practice on change
The SIG’s 'methods and standards theme' team took the audience through the need for and the pace of change, helped to navigate (and make sense of) some of the common vocabulary used by change practitioners, reviewed the plethora of change management methodologies available (we have counted 17 so far!) and identified how to find out more or develop own capabilities for future career paths.
The event gave an overview of the breadth of change methodologies available to those managing change, explored what makes some of them so powerful as well as gibing a chance to provide feedback on what makes change work and input into how we make future reference material work for our members.
This event was open to anyone interested in change management – the curious, the novice or expert practitioners - and was both informative and interactive.
The slides have very kindly been made available for viewing below and on the APM Resources page of the website.
