This workshop will focus on the people side of change that is critical for any successful implementation. I will walk through a change management framework that helps organizations to understand how to create awareness and motivate their people to actually want to change their behaviors in order to achieve astonishing results. I will breakdown the relationship between people, process, and technology and give crunchy solutions to the audience on how to implement a new program or process or technology in their own organization. I follow the ADKAR framework for change management and have deployed on many successful project in which I will share a few examples as case studies. I will also cover the most effective way to communicate to your team as well as how to manage pockets of resistance in your organization as you roll out a new process or technology that may appear to be disruptive.

We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
