CoP Event – Utilizing ‘Rapid Change Management’ (UPDATED)

July 28, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


The Change Management Communities of Practice invites you to, “Utilizing Rapid Change Management”!

This session will address the principles that underlie effective change management in fast-paced, uncertain environments:

  • Organization – Matching information processing capacity with uncertainty
  • Motivation – Resistance to being changed
  • Pace – “One Minute” is too slow for today’s manager

And when all the fancy change management principle and theories fail, tell them to, “Just get over it!”

Part 1: Change Management is “More than a Feeling”

Project managers will often be involved in stirring up emotions as changes they are part of make their journey through the organization. There is not a one-size-fits-all approach in managing change so what approaches should be used? This session will discuss real experiences in moving a large organization through a change process in office space and effectively communicating tradeoffs in the process.

Part 2: Sub-Title – Tell Them to Just Get Over it!

The term “change management” implies a set of skills to manage special situations. The pace and scope of change, however, have accelerated to the point that it has become the norm. Today, change is inherent in all of management. In addition to change, labels such as “innovation” and “disruption” are used to describe what is happening in our lives and organizations.
