PMI Talent Triangle Competency: 1 PDU  Strategic

Presentation Title: 'Coping with Change" - 1 PDU - Presented by Steve Blash, PMP, PMI-ACP

Presentation Abstract:

Mark Twain has a very famous quote that applies to what we project managers are often confronted with; ‘I'm in favor of progress; it's change I don't like.’

For today’s project managers, the rapidly accelerating changes in the areas of technology and infrastructure is causing an impact to the organization.  Project managers not only need to be concerned with what’s going on in their projects but also, they need to be fully engaged as to how the organization will need to change to accommodate the results of the project.  These include new processes, new devices, new technology and of course the impact on personnel in the organization.

This discussion will address:

  • Where does change begin
  • Change Triggers
  • The importance of context of change
  • Leadership’s role in change
  • An iterative approach to change
  • The implementation of change
