It is generally accepted that ‘Engagement’ , and a good understanding of the need for change are critical ingredients for successful and sustainable change. Arnab Banerjee from Transport for London kindly presented a webinar on Tuesday 12 September giving his experience of gaining engagement before, during and after organisational change.
Across a large organisation – Transport for London (TfL) – a major transformation more than 3,000 staff gained broad acceptance (99% of those surveyed understood the reason for the change), was implemented and has been sustained over several years.
This webinar focussed on the change management work carried out by Arnab and his team and, in particular, on the successful efforts at engagement. He then drew together wider lessons:
- The criticality of getting the mechanics of change right
- The link between the Vision and the quality of the end-product (the content)
- The elements that help to drive sustainability
- The importance of openness and trust
This webinar is linked to an article being published in the Autumn 2017 edition of APM Project journal, published on 1 September.
