As the co-chair of the Change Management Institute, Melanie works with senior leaders responsible for significant changes in their organisation, involving restructuring, developing and acquiring new businesses and long term cultural changes. In this highly interactive session, Melanie will take us through the latest thinking from the leaders she works with and the Change Management Institute’s Thought Leadership Panel.

Topics will include the expected competencies for change managers, building networks of change agents/change champions and the framework for managing large-scale change. Melanie will present a summary of each issue; discuss the different perspectives including links to well-known theories and models of change and how these issues in change are developing as the profession of change management matures. She will then facilitate a workshop for everyone to participate in debating the issues and sharing their ideas for managing change.
