Consultants have been labeled as "Change Agents" and this installment in our Master Class series addresses this important topic. Our expert speaker this evening is Jennifer Stapleton, who is listed as one of the top 25 most influential women in Project Management in the world.

Consultants are brought in to assist organisations in making some change. Implementing change consistently and well every time is the nirvana of consultancy. This talk will demonstrate a useful technique for assessing how well the client manages change and hence how the consultant can assist them in weaker areas. It will include some Outperform case studies and show how the technique can add value to the consultant's toolkit.
