070 – Change Management Mic Drops with Tim Creasey

Project Managers are agents of change. Whether you’re project changes organizations, technologies, infrastructure or processes, the success of your project likely depends on *people* actually using your deliverables. But how much of your project is really focused on those people and helping them understand and make those changes? 

Spoiler: Kate *totally* nerds out on this one 🙂 After we recorded this, Kate and Kim quoted Tim to just about everyone they met. Mic drops!

  2. Organizational change requires individual change
    • How much of our outcomes depend on adoption and usage? 
  3. Organizational outcomes are the collective result of individual change
    • What will we do to support adoption and usage?
