Leading Change - Experts Need Not Apply


  • Pre-registration is now available! Pre-registration gives us a better idea of how many will be attending, and gives you a lower fee! Pre-register here!
  • We have a new Community of Practice session after the presentation, the Career & Personal Development CoP, to join our long-standing Quality and PMO CoP's! (Following the PMI's nomenclature, our Special Interest Groups are now using the name Communities of Practice!)

As organizations look to implement major change initiatives, we may find ourselves with the responsibility of leading the charge in a variety of areas. What happens when we discover we are not the expert?

Keith Muller will discuss his experience in leading a major change initiative and how, by leveraging project management tools and training instead of becoming an expert in all areas, he was able to drive change and build new capability in a global organization.
