Synopsis:
Change is a constant within all organisations and resistance is the most significant barrier to successful implementation of a new best practice framework or software. Engaging and enabling people through transformation is key to future improvement; investing in new tools or processes will not deliver positive results without people changing what they do.

How do you do this with the harsh reality that the majority of your staff are disengaged and weary of change? The answer: get them engaged!

This session will discuss the challenges we face in transformation programmes, what engagement looks like, and how leveraging techniques of engagement can ultimately help unleash the value potential of your investment across the enterprise by challenging the status quo.

Target Audience:
Senior Executives / IT Leadership, Key Programme Sponsors, Programme Managers, Process Owners
