1. Welcome from our SIG Chair

Hi I am Donna Unitt the APM Enabling Change SIG Chair. Well what an interesting year so far. We as many other SIGs and branches had a lot planned this year in the event space, but unfortunately Covid-19 has taken its toll. The focus for us now is to achieve what we can against our business plan remotely, so we have a number of blogs planned and potentially a few webinars. The committee continues to meet virtually, as we are spread far and wide across the UK so there is no difference for us in the current climate. As I am used to working remotely and virtually as many of us are I have seen no real difference to the way I work both in my day job and as a volunteer for APM, but what I have noticed is that those who are not used to it have been on a very quick and large learning curve and have had to change and adapt very quickly to new ways of working. Most have been through the change curve and are adapting well to their new normal. Its about retaining those things that have improved for the better when things slowly start to return. There really is no alternative to face to face interaction and networking with our peers lets hope its not too long before we can all get back together again in the physical world.

The nominations are now open for the new committee for 2020/2021 please see section 2. below. If joining the committee is not right for you but you’d like to find out more or have any ideas or suggestions please feel free to get in touch.

We now have over 880 followers now and growing. APM members and others are welcome to interact with us and we encourage you to follow us on Twitter, @apmecsig, where we post: upcoming events of interest to the group, share related material and much more. We have almost 200 followers now on Twitter. We are also available via email.

Help us to increase the appreciation and education of change management.
