Executive and Business Health is a process to transition individuals, teams, and organizations to a desired future state. In a project management context, change management may refer to a project management process wherein changes to the scope of a project are formally introduced and approved.
The Executive and Business Health process regardless of the type of organizational, the critical aspect is management’s ability to create buy-in of their organization’s employees on the change. Effectively managing organizational change is a four-step process:
1. Recognize the changes in the broader business environment
2. Develop the necessary adjustments for management and their company’s needs
3. Train the employees on the appropriate changes
4. Gain the support of the employees with the persuasiveness of the appropriate adjustments
Testimonial from a satisfied conference attendee: “As a collaborative leader, I am constantly pursuing an in-depth understanding of collaboration and how to use it as a tool for success. When I attended the “You must be out of your mind to innovate!” presentation at IFMA’s World Workplace 2015 in Denver (Colorado), I was in search for connections between collaboration and innovation. The presentation by Monique MacKinnon and Dr. Dorothy M. Neddermeyer provided me with insight into the structured and abstract aspects of collaboration and innovation. In addition, the knowledge of the different collaborator types provided me with a tool to further enhance my collaboration efforts. Their knowledge and application of precepts of collaboration and innovation are refreshing and rewarding!” ~Michael Kirk for “Master Solutions”, Tucson, AZ
