Is change management simply an element of project management or a separate and distinct discipline? Should one take precedence over the other or should they be inextricably linked or integrated? These questions are being heard more frequently as the practice of change management has increased. Confusion between their relationship and compatibility is fueling an emerging debate between about the role of these disciplines, their practice, and their deployment in organizations. This presentation will identify and discuss the key gaps and compatibilities of these critical disciplines. The information will be delivered from the perspective of both the Change Management Leader and the Project/Program Manager. Jon will engage participants in a dialogue about the battle between these two disciplines highlighting key elements of each discipline that are critical to the success of both when deployed on projects.
