About the event
Research tells us that 70% of change initiatives fail due to user resistance and reluctance. Managing project deadlines, critical paths, and deliverables is one set of skills, but getting people to embrace change and work in new ways requires empathy and a flexible strategy.
"Agile" is a term that- while used frequently - means different things to different people. Agile change management rolls change out in small but frequent iterations. In a time when uncertainty is the only norm, Agile change is a fantastic strategy because it doesn’t require that the entire change be mapped out from the beginning. It involves building excitement about the change, creating a roadmap to improve understanding, and engaging those impacted by the change as key stakeholders in the planning and testing throughout the change initiative.
After completing this 90 minute webinar, participants will:
- Have a foundational understanding of how Agile change works.
- Understand the benefits of using an Agile roadmap to communicate change
- Understand the importance of empathy when trying to persuade others to adopt a new way of working
- Have new tools and strategies that can be applied immediately
This course is for anyone responsible for leading others through change. Agile is a framework that was first coined in IT, but this approach can be applied in any industry.
