About the PresentationBy definition, projects involve change. Organizations thrive through innovation - otherwise known as change. Many people, on the other hand, don't always embrace change easily. So how can projects and organizations, made up of people, succeed in managing change? Forced assimilation isn't really an option for most of us, so we must find a more nuanced approach. This presentation will discuss understanding and managing resistance to change through communication, collaboration, and building trust.

These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc.
