Building the Managed Change™ Plan Workshop

Engage the project team in developing a Change Management Plan for immediate implementation

The Building the Change Management Plan Program is designed to provide project teams the opportunity to learn the Managed Change™ Methodology while applying the concepts and tools to a change effort currently happening in their organization. The LaMarsh Global Consultant facilitating the Program will consult with the project team in the classroom as they build a robust change management plan AND through the first thirty days of Plan implementation. The Program will also focus on the importance of strong project governance, team competency in Managed Change™ Methodology and the team dynamics that can occur when formally integrating change management into project management.
