    Speakers: Kevin Anderson & Carolyn Vreeman
    Agenda:

    • 4-4:30pm - informal networking

    Leading change is not easy. By definition we know that there will be major challenges which the “change guidebook” doesn’t address. Under these inevitable circumstances, how do we achieve the best results? 

    In this interactive session, Kevin and Carolyn will provide a point/counterpoint analysis of the following questions:

    • How to build an effective change team versus managing out the dead weight? 
    • How do you ensure that you get results versus embedding the change learnings?
    • How do you achieve project transparency versus protecting the organization?

    During this session, Kevin and Carolyn will explore how these key questions play out in companies, government and nonprofit organizations. Join us for a lively discussion and share your ideas on how you would handle these critical events.

    Join us at Medtronic on May 18 to learn about their journey integrating change management into their enterprise project management office.

    Medtronic has been on a journey in the past years to integrate change management into its enterprise PMO. Where dedicated change management resources had focused almost entirely on major ERP rollouts a few years ago, now these projects are actually only a minority of the work done by Medtronic's change management function. This is because change management became integrated into the required project management framework used across the enterprise, serving as a valuable intake process for the change management function.

    Join us to learn how Medtronic integrated change management across the enterprise. We'll take a look at a brief case study of how this growth and integration evolved and hear from organization leaders about the success observed in adopting this integrated framework. After this review, we'll hear from a panel representing senior leaders, middle management, and day-to-day users of the framework, with time for Q&A from attendees.

    See you there!
