The Psychology of Change
Achieving project outcomes means getting people to do something different. The best project strategy will not achieve its objective if your people are slow to embrace change.
Ignoring or delaying action on the people side of project management results in resistance, delays and failure to meet efficiency and performance targets. Likewise, the challenge for today’s program and project managers is to gain airtime and support for their initiative, from key stakeholders who may already be experiencing change fatigue.
Most project managers recognise the need to strengthen their capabilities to quickly overcome resistance, foster collaboration or cultivate a culture of innovation and change agility, but many do not know how to most effectively build these organisational and personal skills.
To quickly realise the return on your investment and avoid performance reductions during planning and implementation, project managers need to know how to quickly influence, guide and inspire people often in situations that are characterised by uncertainty and ambiguity.
Recent neuroscience provides methods program and project managers can use to mitigate common, people-related pitfalls that can slow or derail projects.
Understanding how human brains respond to challenge and change, what impedes adaptation and what is required for people to learn, assists project managers to cultivate a culture that fosters flexibility, learning and performance. These informed project managers know how to achieve on time, on budget projects and use the experience as a springboard to build individual resilience while strengthening the organisation.
