PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE HOURS Author Julia Steel and Nimble Giants Consulting President Renee Campisi
Have your struggled with Change Management? In this episode of Project Management Office Hours we have an in-depth discussion with Julia Steel and Renee Campisi on Change Management and Agile for Business.
We often look at Change Management on a per project basis rather than looking at Change as an overall initiative. How are we working within organizations with Managers and Leaders to prepare for change? Julia shares insights from her book, “Buy-in: How to Lead Change, Build Commitment and Inspire People.”
Listen to hear Julia describe the 3 C’s, Confidence, Clout and Courage to lead to successful Change. Renee shares her story which has grown to founding Nimble Giants. Listen to hear her discuss Agile for Business and the experiences that have helped shape her work. She provides great insights with stories, tips and tools which help organizations and leaders implement change.Think of “Change Fitness”, just as athletes need to practice and exercise to improve within their sport of choice we need to practice Change to improve.

ABOUT THE PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE HOURS SERIES
Project Management Office Hours is intended to provide Project Management professionals a place to drop in and discuss Success Stories, Best Practices, and Lessons Learned. Project Management Consultant Joy Gumz has shared with us, “Operations keep the lights on, strategy provides the light at the end of the tunnel, but project management is the train engine that moves the organization forward.”
Each of us has a unique story to tell, but collectively we share a message that organizations who embrace Project Management Best Practices perform better than those which don’t. Organizations which align Projects to Strategy perform better. Organizations with Engage Executive Sponsors deliver better results. Organizations which measure Project Management performance outperform those which don’t.
During our Project Management Office Hours, we hear directly from Industry leaders how to make an impact in our profession. How we, collectively, will Advance Project Management Best Practices, One Listener at a time!
Project Management Office Hours is powered by The PMO SQUAD
