​Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?

  • An organization purchases an exciting new technology—that sits on the shelf.
  • An out-of-the box technology is implemented—and the initial handful of users fades to zero.
  • A customized solution is launched after long, expensive and painstaking efforts—but the high-dollar solution no longer meets business needs and is now based on aging technology.

A major culprit in each of these scenarios is low organizational change management (OCM) capability. The rate of technology change is now faster than organizations' or employees' ability to adapt to those changes. Yet business leaders often underestimate the importance of building their OCM muscle. It's a costly mistake. 

In this session, TRS' Organizational Change Management lead and Catapult Systems will share effective OCM practices and lessons learned during a successful Digital Workplace journey in a government agency.
