OCM in the Digital Age

I was, once again, honoured to be asked to speak at the Canberra Community of Practice for Change Management, in Australia.  As the first speaker for the year, I had the opportunity to provide some context for the year, looking at tools and technology for OCM practice in Australia.

Never one to pass up an opportunity, I thought it would be interesting to look into the “Pandora’s Box of the ‘ages’ of technology and discuss how we, as the ‘new custodians’ of humanity (what ever that is!) might look into the crystal ball and find some tools to help us take people on a journey into the future.”

Well, we didnt get too detailed into some of the tools and looked at some of the potentially disruptive technology which OCM Strategist and practitioners will be expected to work in and through, in the not too distant future.

The presentation uses ‘Sway’ – a newish thing that I happened upon, and it looks like it has some good attempt at Accessibility – I would be interested in your thoughts?  I was lucky enough to also have some colleagues from the Community of Practice of Accessibilty attend the presentation event, so I am looking forward to their feedback too.

Just how immature are you?

Developing ‘Change Management Maturity’ is hard.

Probably because when you try to develop maturity of one competency in an organisation, you have to have a go at all of them together.

I had the opportunity to discuss this with the Canberra Community of Practice of  Change Managers, in Australia last week.  I have attached the presentation, which also contains the collective wisdom and experience of those who attended, with content gathered during the session.

We also had an opportunity to pull apart a couple of change management frameworks, and discuss how we would develop a maturity development roadmap for an organisation – hopefully there is some learning outcomes in there that will help those who haven’t yet had the opportunity to do so, and some offerings from the ‘brains trust’ about some of the pot holes to avoid as they go along.
