CASLIS Ottawa Workshop: Mastering Change

CASLIS Ottawa is excited to be offering a workshop entitled "Mastering Change" led by François Lizotte, an expert with 10 years experience in Change Management. This 3 hour workshop will teach you the core principles of Change Management and how to implement them in your organization.

Workshop Description
Are big changes in store for your organisation? Project Management is not enough to ensure success. Statistics show that more than 70% of major change initiatives fail to reach their objectives. Projects often take longer to implement than expected and return on investment is never realized, making senior management question the validity of future investment. Outsourcing, downsizing, organizational restructuring, implementation of major systems and other significant changes need to be looked at in a new light. Learn how to ensure success by understanding how change affects people and incorporating proven Change Management principles into your project plan.

Participants in this workshop will:

  • Understand why a Change Management approach is critical to project success
  • Learn how to sell a Change Management approach to senior management
  • Receive Change Management toolkits developed by The Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (UK), which they can immediately put to use in their home organisations
  • Gain hands-on experience working with selected tools
