Managing Change Using Project Management Skills

continuingstudies.wisc.edu/0855-C-PDAS See upcoming dates


This class will be held in our highly interactive, live online classroom over three consecutive morning sessions. 

Project management protocols focus on timeframe, budget, and scope, they do not often account for the changes in attitude and behavior that people will need to successfully change. This workshop will focus on the relationship between and integration of change management and project management processes and tools to help you successfully manage both the technical and human objectives associated with any project. Although not strictly required, basic experience with project management concepts will support deeper learning.


Learning objectives

  • Describe the relationship between project management and change management.
  • Identify tools and approaches to help you identify and clearly communicate project scope and its impact on stakeholders.
  • Develop a plan to engage executives and managers as project sponsors.
  • Describe components of a plan to sustain project outcomes.
