  • Identifying strategies to address change;
  • Creating a partnership with the business to ensure well informed decisions are made;
  • Aligning your project plan with the business strategy

Key learning points:

  • Identifing what is causing the resistance and the solutions to gain support for your project plan;
  • Gaining business leadership support and engagement for your project when leaders feel they have other business priorities;
  • How to identify key influencers that can be part of your extended project team and how they can support your project requirements
  • Change communication strategies

There will be an opportunity for participants to present their current approach to overcoming resistance and identify solutions to current challenges. Each participant will leave with practical solutions to create immediate actions plans to overcome project resistance.
