Event Details

 Change is no longer an event; it is a condition of work.

  • How do we move beyond traditional approaches to become more agile in support of the rapidly changing workplace? 
  • How can we adapt our approach to bring Millennials into the conversation? 
  • What happens when change pushes out or up, not down from above? 
  • What does this mean for us as change management professionals?

Join senior organization change management leaders for a lively discussion on how the practice of change management is changing. Hear how other organizations are facing these challenges and share your learning while building new relationships.
