Gina Abudi (@GinaAbudi on twitter) returns to talk with host Craig Price about positive organizational change. Change is hard, it can be scary for some and automatically rejected by others. Thankfully, Gina has written a new book Implementing Positive Organizational Change: A Strategic Project Management Approach to guide companies through change and create a culture where change is not only expected but embraced. The two discuss engaging employees, creating stakeholder support committees and Gina's new undertaking as a speaker.
From the book: In today's increasingly competitive global marketplace, organizations that do not regularly undertake change initiatives will find it difficult, if not impossible, to continue to be successful long term. This guide explains how to develop a continuous improvement culture of change that will be perceived by employees as a valuable opportunity instead of something negative to worry about and resist. It outlines a strategic project management approach for ensuring successful implementation and desired results, and includes mini case studies, tips, and practical examples.
