The Undercover Role of the Project Manager
Keynote Speech by Dr. James Brown
Do you have the fundamental change management knowledge to assure project success?
Change management is the responsibility of the project manager. But, it is a role that is typically under appreciated… underutilized… and frankly not even recognized by many project managers. Change management is complex. There is no cookbook recipe you can find and then simply apply to your situation. Change management is necessary for success. Just like a battery stores up energy, you need to store up knowledge of change management and then apply when needed. This keynote presentation will help you do just that.
