Monthly Chapter Meeting

Session Title:  A Systemic View of Organizational Change and the Pivotal Role of HR

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 (11:30 AM - 1:30 PM) - Live Webcast Also Available

Session Overview: 

The pivotal role of HR in organizational change initiatives remains underutilized, and underappreciated. Over the evolution of my career in practice, teaching, and with my research, I have developed a comprehensive view of change initiatives, and subsequently have developed a curriculum that shares this knowledge with the business community. My presentation helps HR practitioners to think systemically about change, and identify opportunities for HR to play a pivotal role in change.


Learning Objectives:

- Identify opportunities for HR to play a role in change initiatives

- Learn about and consider the importance of data-driven decision-making

- Illustrate the systemic nature of change and the multiple levels of change (individual, team, and organization
