Topic: Relax! 6 steps to overcoming resistance to change in your project

In a changing and uncertain environment, where priorities can be revised according to the economic, health and social context, change management is even more crucial than before.

A large proportion of employees are worried about the future and any IT project can quickly be perceived as a threat to jobs, or as an unnecessary investment, particularly at middle management level.

This makes it all the more important to have an agile and adapted change management method. This session will outline the main phases of effective change management and provide project managers with the keys to ensuring the continued goodwill of their teams throughout the process and the project.
