Have you ever had a project that was brought in on time, under budget and exactly what was asked for but failed from a customer satisfaction stand point? What happened? You missed a major part of the proejct – the people. As we all know Project Management is the technical aspects of handling project delivery; however, Change Management is handling the people aspects of project delivery. It is the combination of these 2 sets of skills that help us as project managers be successful. This session discusses how the delivery of proejcts move from the current state through a transition period to the successful future state. And how we as project managers can use the methods of Change management to improve our project delivery.
