Projects are about change. Whether you are changing systems, how your organisation works, or the services you deliver, you are most likely organising those changes as a project and using Project Management techniques to plan and deliver the required tasks. In this session we will explore some practical considerations and techniques to incorporate Change Management into your Project Management approach, and deal with arising unforeseen Change Management challenges. Through case studies and discussion, we will learn what has (or has not) worked well in other organisations, and what might help you to deliver your change projects.

Digital strategies and cake

14:00 Wednesday 17th November 2021

Online virtual event,

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted almost every person and organisation around the world, and the non-profit sector was not spared. In response to these challenges, our sector was forced to innovate at speed, and find new ways - often using digital tools to engage with our audiences, support our beneficiaries, and provide our staff and volunteers with the tools to do their jobs. In this session we will touch upon some of the success stories, reflect back on how the non-profit sector has responded to these challenges, and consider what the 'new new normal' might look like. Which of these digital innovations - driven by the response to the challenges of the last 18 months - will stick; and what might this mean in terms of our future digital strategies?
