Synopsis:

In this high-paced and entertaining session, Dr Emma Langman will share some of the secrets of "change magic" that you can take away and use to create the team that you need for your Agile future.  According to Emma, most of what is taught in Change Management theory is old-fashioned and no longer applies to today's multi-generational workforce.  Not only that, she believes that the idea that people "hate change" is an utter nonsense!  Expect to enjoy a fast-moving presentation and then feel free to bring your own challenges and questions for some practical suggestions and ideas from Emma and your fellow delegates.
