International Project Management Day 2023 Online Conference

November 2, 2023

About the Presentation

Organizational change is a constant in business, but it can mean major disruptions to in-flight projects. Stakeholders leave the company, new executive sponsors move in, people and funding are moved to different teams with different managers and different priorities.  These changes often happen without clear guidance on what to do with in-progress work.

Project Managers bear the responsibility of communicating project value, success criteria, budget, schedule and milestones to a new audience of stakeholders who has zero context on the work being done.  These new stakeholders may even have their own opinions on what success criteria or scope should be, or if your project should even still exist.

In this talk, Kate Anderson and Kim Essendrup of the Project Management Happy Hour podcast share their experiences going through this process (over and over) and share some practical tips to help you sail the rough seas of organizational change.
