Episode 41 – Organizational Change Management: Jehane Adam
If you have listened to a couple of podcast episodes you know that we are true believers in that the biggest “problem” in any architecture, BPM, or Process Mining project is not the technology or the processes and other architecture views – it is the people! Getting people along with your change is the hardest thing to do and therefore we are happy to revisit the topic of Org. Change Management on a semi-regular basis.
Jehane has worked as a Change Management and Business Transformation lead for over 15 years working on large multinational projects in multiple industries including financial services, consulting, manufacturing, sports and entertainment, healthcare, transportation and the public sector. She likes to focus on helping clients to drive lasting change and to support teams in working better together while achieving their aims.
In her down time, Jehane enjoys coaching, reading, continuously learning and spending time with her tribe in relaxing environments like the spa…
In this episode of the podcast we are talking about:
- Jehane’s background
- Evaluating what you actually need to make org. change management real for your audience
- The five “Whys” and the “WIIFM” (What’s In It For Me?)
- Meet people where they are, not where you want them or need them to be
- Questions to ask when making a change
- How to create a compelling story
- Setting up for successful adoption
- Partnering effectively with change managers
- Common mistakes
- What makes a good Org. Change Management professional
