SYNOPSIS
This session will look at the various ‘P’s that embody the world of change initiatives, looking at definitions, perspectives and how different people might identify with the various roles and activities involved. Whilst there may be a myriad of certifications, governance structures, bodies of knowledge and competency frameworks that underpin the many activities undertaken within organisations undergoing a business/digital transformation, it should not be forgotten that it is people who ultimately deliver change initiatives.

There is often a great difference between the given job titles for people undertaking these various roles and activities. Inevitably, this does have an influence over how much organisations expect to pay them.

It can seem quite daunting and unfamiliar, and for some transforming organisations, this may feel as if they are exploring vast expanses of the great unknown. Using characters and contexts from ‘Star Trek’, this session will attempt to guide participants on a journey through the nebulous terminology.
