Understanding and handling barriers to change

Spearheading large projects within an organization can be tricky under even the best of circumstances. Throw a couple of rocks into the mix and there’s a real possibility that the project could stall, miss key milestones or fail to cross the finish line.
The Kanban Method exposes practitioners to a series of techniques aimed at working around the rocks as effectively and efficiently as possible. In many instances, by following these methods, the rocks will become smoother and will no longer impact your ability to achieve success.
However, we know life isn’t always that easy. You’re bound to come across a rock that is so big and so resistant that it could impact the success of your project. In these instances, it’s important that you have a set of tools to effectively and appropriately move that rock.
In this presentation, Marisa utilizes her background in Psychology, Executive Coaching and Organizational Development to help attendees identify, categorize and understand the friction points of the Big Rocks. She’ll teach you how to Rock Map, implement behavioral coaching techniques and utilize project champions to achieve the project outcomes you desire.
