Organizational Change Management
Automation, Cloud, DevOps, Agile, AI, Digital Transformation, Managed Services; you name it, all have one thing in common – Change.
The science of organizational change management – or OCM – can dramatically reduce the amount of time it takes for your workforce to rebound and for your company to realize the benefits of a transformation. Studies show more than 60 percent of a project’s success hinges on people, even when new technology, processes and knowledge assets are firmly in place.
Join us on May 2nd in Toronto, where thought leaders in the OCM space will discuss the art and science of Change Management. Learn about the Six Pillars of OCM and best practices to realize benefits faster.
In order to lead this discussion forum, Core is pleased to welcome Randy Geoghagan, Partner OCM at ISG will discuss their experience leading large change initiatives.
