How To Deliver Technology Enabled Change
Webinar on How To Successfully Deliver And Imbed Technology Enabled Change (30 Min.)
It’s surprising how many people don’t know what change management is! At a Starbucks in a small NJ, US town, Steve Leebrook, the US CEO of Systems Accountants and I shared our surprise. Despite large changes we see in businesses, most CEO’s don’t change management techniques, never mind how to implement them. This webinar discusses how to successfully deliver and imbed technology enabled change.
Steve has been staffing and recruiting for over 20 years. He recently came over to the US from the UK and has been staffing for 2 years in the US. He mentioned how “he was a little bit underwhelmed” on how change management wasn’t featured much as he started working with CIOs and CEOs on how they were implementing technology, getting technology used and meeting their return on investments.
Change Management is not at the same level of maturity in the US as it is in the UK. I had a similar experience, where, as a project manager for over 20 years, change management and its benefits weren’t introduced to me until my UK counterparts got Prosci training and their change management certifications. This is additionally surprising as Prosci, a US company, is a leader in change management research and training.
Steve and I realized we the shared same values, ideologies, and vision around change management. We hatched a plan to talk more about change and how it impacts both of our professions. We both thought a webinar would be terrific (this was in February, 2020, a few weeks before the COVID-19 Pandemic hit the US by storm).
What is Change Management?
Change Management is helping people and organizations get through change. The webinar, in a Fireside Chat style, defines change management, looks at today’s challenges and gives an easy-to-remember acronym for 4 key pieces of change management (BANK–Buy In, Adoption & Resistance Plan, Notification through Communication and Training and KPI Tracking).
What Change Management Can Do
In the webinar, CFO’s, Financial Managers, Project Managers and Change Managers asked great questions:
-Given the reopening during the Corona virus how will companies transform the people and technology adoption in the new world?
-When you plan for training, how do you measure success?
-What is the one piece of advice that folks can take away when wanting to include change management?
