PMI Metrolina, PMI NC Piedmont and the Association of Change Management Professionals (ACMP) Carolinas Chapter collaborated on a virtual 3-part series to discover the value and advantage of project management and organizational change management integration.
This series was hosted by elite executive program managers and organizational change managers from various Fortune 500 companies. The presenters led the discussions on various adoption challenges across the enterprise that have led to project failures in industry after industry. The No. 1 reason a project fails, according to Forbes Magazine, is not preparing the enterprise for the change, the enhancement or process improvement. Each session examined the disciplines of project management and organizational change management side-by-side and contemplated the value and approach of each:
- Intersection of Project Management and Org Change Management—Speaker: Baldeep Mac and Steve Brown
- The Power of Partnership—Speakers: Clift Pompee and Laura Pepper
- Learning the Success in the Failures—Speaker: Cassandra Willis, Nicole Kelly, and Jennifer Baker
The series was an overwhelming success as several attendees acknowledged an enhanced comprehensive understanding of how project/program manager, business analyst and change manager partnerships can accelerate results for clients, customers and employees.
