Daptiv to Host Webinar for PPM Professionals on How to Transform from Accidental Change Managers to Intentional Change Leaders

Daptiv, today announced the upcoming live webinar “Transforming Accidental Change Management to Intentional Change Leadership in Project Portfolio Management,” scheduled for August 13, 2014 at 11 a.m. PT.

If you are a Project Portfolio Management (PPM) professional then you are both a steward and champion of change, you have to be out of necessity; the types of projects you manage are instruments of change by their very nature in that their completion delivers something new. However, studies show as many as a third of projects derail because businesses are unprepared to make the fundamental changes necessary for their success, such as a new technology deployment [1]. Therefore, whether PPM professionals realize it or not they fall into either the intentional or accidental change manager category. Accidental change managers do not actively see themselves in the light of a change steward, whereas intentional change managers consider change management to be a responsibility and requirement of their role. Regardless of category, all PPM professionals can benefit from additional training in successful change management tactics.

When Prosci recently asked PPM professionals what they would do differently on their next project, the second most popular answer was securing sufficient organizational change management (OCM) resources, combined with an emphasis on preparation and planning. The same report also found projects that actively incorporate formal change management programs were an astonishing six times more likely to meet or exceed their stated goals [2].

During this webinar Mark Mullaly, president at Interthink Consulting, Inc., AJ Holley, director of change management and learning at Daptiv and Jesse Jacoby, founder of Emergent a leader in business transformation and strategic change management, will prepare PPM professionals, who are “accidental change managers,” to transform into “intentional change leaders” while providing new and valuable tools to PPM professionals who have already implemented formal change management principles and practices to heighten project success rates.

By attending you will gain a better understanding of the importance, principles, and execution of effective OCM. You will also learn the habits of highly effective change leaders and how to thoughtfully incorporate company-wide OCM approaches for project and program success.
