Synopsis - How to tap into the people side of change to guarantee lasting success
Every single person that adopts new systems and processes (or simply has to engage with their environment in different ways) will respond to change projects with varying degrees of fear, scepticism and hope. The ‘Tightrope of Change’ will be used to illustrate the importance of having clear people requirements for projects. Delegates will leave the session with practical tips on how to recognise resistance to change, and then how to plan for it and be able to overcome it. They will also be able to calculate the hidden costs (in actual pounds!) of ignoring the people side of change.
