Change managers and project managers come at the same goal of maximizing ROI for their organizations, but from different perspectives and approaches and with different skill sets.

While project managers are responsible for achieving specific objectives on time and on budget, the change manager’s role is broader.

Change managers apply a structured approach to helping individuals, teams and organizations negotiate relentless change.

A project manager turns ideas into reality. Increasingly, project managers are required to take on the role of change manager as well.

Business today can’t afford to carry out tasks without considering the larger picture. Today, integration is unavoidable – and expected.

In this hour-long interactive session, Global Knowledge will discuss the similarities and differences between project management and change management.

They will also identify the occasions when both a project manager and a change manager might be needed.
