Increasingly, organizations are recognising that the only way they are going to deliver the huge amount of change that they have planned on their roadmaps and in their portfolios, is through internal capability.

Change only happens if those directly affected make the decision to start working differently, and these decisions are not made by external consultants imposing their will on others – they are made day-to-day by those altering how they carry out business as usual.

To help influence the pace of change at this local level sits the role of ‘Local’ Change Agent.

This is a leadership role, relying on natural influencing and persuasion skills.

In this webinar Change Agent Guru Melanie Franklin will look at how organizations are building their capability for change, and specifically what the role of Local Change Agent requires, and some of the techniques and activities that can help you create participation in your change initiatives.

Presenter: Melanie Franklin, (LinkedIn profile, @AgileMelanie) has a track record of excellence in project, programme and portfolio planning & delivery. She has set up and run the project management capability for several major corporates and has been responsible for the successful delivery of global transformational change programmes for over twenty years. Co-chair of the Change Management Institute in the UK, Melanie is a ‘Master’ level change practitioner and author of many books on change and project management including Managing Business Transformation: A Practical Guide; Agile Change Management: A Practical Framework for Successful Change Planning and Implementation.  and her newest book Communicating Change: How to control your own change initiative.

About the Book:
Managing and Leading People Through Organizational Change: The Theory and Practice of Sustaining Change Through People

Tremendous forces for change are radically reshaping the world of work. Disruptive innovations, radical thinking, new business models, and resource scarcity are impacting every business sector.

Although the scale of expected change is not unprecedented, what is unique is the pervasive nature of the change and its accelerating pace.

While structures, systems, processes, and strategies are relatively simple to understand and even fix, people are more complex.

Change can have a different impact on each individual, which can cause different attitudes and reactions.

Managing and Leading People Through Organizational Change provides a critical analysis of change and transformation in organizations from both a theoretical and practical perspective.

It addresses the individual, team, and organizational issues of leading and managing people before, during and after change, using case studies and interviews with people from organizations in different industries across the globe.

Each chapter includes learning objectives, boxed summaries, diagrams/models, case examples with questions, exercises, and a list of references and further reading.

Many Projects Generate Transformations.

A new system will change processes, concepts and behaviors. Merging companies and corporate restructurations implies deep changes.

This is then followed by common pathology in projects: the resistance.

Do you think resistant people are an obstacle in your projects?

Resistance is a behavior during just one stage in a process of seven stages.

In this webinar Luis Alberto Caceres Villota (LinkedIn profile) author of Murphy On Projects: Causas de falhas nos projetos e como preveni-las (Portuguese Edition) will help to understand these processes and offer a glance over formal tools and methodologies to manage all the complexity involved that will implement lasting change.
