023 – Learning to Swim: Getting oriented in a new organization without going under
Getting started in a new organization, new customer, or new parts of your current org can be tough, especially since managing a project usually means you need to navigate all those waters like a pro – out of the gate. But how do you do that? How do you “get to know” the organization quickly and effectively so you can get the show on the road?
This episode we talk with a Change Management specialist, Dilerjit Oberoi, who will help us learn to “swim” in a new organization – or to new parts of your current organization. No need to ‘go under’ when you have advice from a great expert like Dilerjit!
