Business Analysis Webinars for March 2019


Change Readiness

Presented by Bob Faw, Trainer and Consultant at Corporate Education Group


Organizations everywhere have been undergoing tremendous changes in the last two years. A major challenge they are running into is how difficult change is to adapt to both emotionally and mentally. Give your people the tools and attitudes to be "change ready" - a mental/emotional state in which they seek solutions instead of blaming others. They look for opportunities in the changes and choose optimism. They vent their emotions in a helpful way and accept change more quickly.

Learning objectives:

  • Increased resilience to bounce back after the unexpected
  • Ability to adapt more quickly to a new environment
  • Ability to see opportunities in change instead of fighting, fleeing, or freezing
  • Reacting with optimism rather than the blame game
  • Better health than when resisting change


Audience: Public

Change Ready Leadership: Strategies to Create Positive Change

Presented by Gregg Brown, Author of “Ready, Set, Change AGAIN!”


Most of us are required to lead change as part of our regular roles whether you are in the BA or PM field. Our staff, clients, colleagues and vendors may think they are ‘change ready’ because of their expertise, yet no one is ready for change that might have a negative impact on them, or that might increase the amount of work they have on their plate! What tools are available to help those of us navigate the speed of change as we try to get the people we influence engaged in our ideas? To evolve and be future ready for the changing environment, we need to build these capabilities as there’s no end to the multiple changes that happen at work.

In this interactive session, we will examine 5 strategies that you can use with your colleagues, co-workers and stakeholders.
