Project Manager as Change Leader: Improve Project Outcomes and Increase Your Value!


A recent Gallup study identified 2 of the 3 major reasons organizational projects fail are related to people or change factors. Often times, organizations rely solely on change professionals to address these factors.

In this engaging hands-on session, we make the case for why project managers need to be personally invested and skilled on organizational change for improved outcomes for their organization, their projects and their personal growth and development. Participants learn how to position change as absolutely essential to project success as well as how to action critical change moments that matter. Participants walk away with practical learning that can immediately applied to enhance their project manager toolkit!

Learning Objectives & Outcomes

  1. Define the importance of the Project Manager’s role in change
  2. Explore key change moments that matter for project managers- what, why and how
  3. Gain learning and tools to put into immediate practice!
