Almost every organization is experiencing transformative changes to their IT capabilities and internal processes. These changes invariably have a significant impact on the way that employees do their jobs. The Learning & Development and Organizational Change Management functions have a critical role in supporting these transformations. Unfortunately, these two functions are typically funded, structured, and managed completely independently, and often have difficulty coordinating their activities.
This presentation will look at a typical IT change initiative from the perspective of both an Org Change practitioner and an Instructional Designer. It will examine the differences in the way they approach supporting an internal IT project, and provide session participants with concrete steps to make themselves, their departments, and their organizations more successful supporting internal transformations.
