James T. Brown

Speaker:   Dr. James T. Brown
Topic Description:   Change Management: The Undercover Role of the Project Manager

Do you have the fundamental change management knowledge to assure project success? Change management for organizational (stakeholder and customer acceptance) change is a responsibility of the project manager. But, it is a role that is typically under-appreciated… underutilized… and frankly not even recognized by many project managers. Change management is complex. There is no cookbook recipe you can find and then simply apply to your situation. Change management is necessary for success. Just like a battery stores up energy, you need to store up knowledge of change management and then apply when needed. This keynote presentation will help you do just that.

Session Takeaways
  • Change management requires a plan, and fancy change models are not required for success
  • Without adequate change management, a project can fail even if the deliverable meets and/or exceeds all project objectives
  • Change management must also address the journey to the deliverable 

Speaker Bio: 

DR. JAMES T. BROWN, PMP, PE, CSP, has spoken to audiences from Anchorage Alaska to Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. He is a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) by the National Speakers Association. It is the highest earned designation in the speaking industry. Participants say his use of stories and humor bring critical truths to light, in an entertaining way that leaves them motivated to take action.
He provides brilliant bluntness on real world, common sense practices for project management and leadership. An IBM executive stated after Dr. Brown’s keynote speech, “If we all took the time to step back and remember what Dr. Brown taught us, we would be unstoppable in the marketplace.”
Dozens and dozens of leading companies—including Siemens, Honeywell, IBM and Bristol-Myers Squibb—have brought Dr. Brown in to improve their project execution and leadership through training.
