Topic:  Effective Change Management:  Creating Strong Performance and Results Using a Strategic Alignment Process

March Chapter Event

Much of the literature in Change Management shows that managing change is a complex and complicated process.  Missteps often happen and many efforts fail.  Numerous books and articles have been written pointing to disastrous change efforts, as well as those which provide a roadmap for creating successful change.  During change, the ideal is to create alignment and engagement throughout the organization.  One powerful tool for creating high-performance outcomes is a Strategic Alignment Meeting.  This meeting ensures that everyone understands the reasons for the change, are focused on the same outcomes, and are clear about how to work together to create the desired results.

In this fast-paced presentation, Dr. Mark Friedman shares some ideas and thoughts about a strategic alignment process he has been using over the last 20 years to help organizations manage change successfully.
