“Riding the Waves of Change: How to Manage Change for Smooth Engineering and Construction Project Sailing”
E&C project initiatives often encounter rough waters because the organization asks employees to do something different. These initiatives muddy the waters when change management processes and tools aren’t aligned and integrated into the overall project management framework. Learn the critical success factors and “must-do” steps to enable your project change management interventions to succeed and sustain the test of time.
Speaker: Mark Hordes, Senior Partner, Allen Austin
