Speaker: Pete Renneker, CSC
Earthquakes! Fire! Security Breaches! Acquisitions! New Service Offerings! What do these events have in common? They all represent major organizational changes requiring change management proficiency. External events force us to change; understanding how people respond is critical to a successful BCP. As BC professionals, we are in the business of managing immediate and often catastrophic changes. Basic project management can deal with the discreet tasks required to make a change, but it does not account for the human experience. This presentation introduces the structure of change, what we experience when forced to change, and strategies for managing the process.
