Projects are never a success when they are delivered—their product must be adopted to declare success. Whether you are delivering a process for HR, creating new model of cell phone for your customers, or implementing a new ERP system for your company, if they do not see value in the output of your project, it is a failure. Most project teams, however, are focused on maintaining scope, schedule, and budget, they are far removed from the end-user, and they have little concept on how to persuade someone to use what they are developing. The fact of the matter is, though, that if they are the first people involved in the making a tangible product that their customers can use, adapt, and enhance to create value.

Organization Change Management for Project Teams helps your project manager, their teams, and their stakeholders:

  1. Deliver truly successful projects.
  2. Understand what Organization Change Management (OCM) means to your organization.
  3. Learn how to build OCM into your projects and your culture.

Organizations the world over struggle to make changes stick. This class is designed to integrate the change in the project where the product of the project is first realized in a manner that end-users can see and feel the upcoming change and take ownership of it.
