While project management can help create changes, the project doesn't truly succeed unless people actually start implementing the changes in their daily activities. The practice of change management includes the strategies and techniques to encourage people to overcome their resistance to change and take advantage of the new systems, policies, and practices included in the change.

Coping with COVID-19 Stress and Anxiety by Reginald Scotland
The current COVID-19 pandemic has caused wide-scale economic havoc around the world as organizations change their business operations in novel ways: employees working from home, using new protective gear and processes, producing new products such as medical supplies and equipment, suspending operations temporarily, or even going bankrupt. Changes to how people work and related uncertainty creates stress in the workplace. Many households are also now dealing with reduced income caused by these employment changes, adding a further stressor. And capping it off, people have to deal with the fear of how the viral pandemic will affect their own health and that of loved ones. With all of these contributing factors, it is easy to see why some are struggling to cope with the stress an anxiety generated by this global pandemic. In this webinar recording, learn about seven attributes that you may already possess -- and that you can develop further -- to help you cope with the stress caused by the uncertainty and fear caused by these changes. For each of these seven attributes, learn how it contributes your own personal resilience, how you rank, and ideas for further development.

Benefits Realization: Combining Change Management and Project Management to Achieve Project Success by Ori Schibi
Project Managers work hard to make sure that their project deliverables are created, reviewed, and signed off by their clients on time and on budget. But what happens if the deliverables never get used? What if the stakeholders resist the new changes and the project budget was spent in vain. Is “on time” and “on budget” enough to ensure success? Of course not. What project sponsors really want is for the project to achieve its expected business case benefits. Enter the discipline of change management. Strategies and practices exist to help ensure that project deliverables are accepted and used by project stakeholders to achieve the intended value. Change management fits these strategies and practices into frameworks that help one to ensure that a project delivers its intended results, not just its intended deliverables.
Join Procept senior consultant Ori Schibi in this 1 hour webinar as he shows project managers how they can start using change management practices to make their projects more successful.
