PMI Yorkshire and Humber Event.

"This new system is rubbish" - Improving IT change implementations

21st June 2017 at 6pm

University of York, Deramore Lane, Heslington, York, YO10 5GH


Main Speaker: Ben Salder

The PMI Yorkshire & Humber branch are pleased to be partnering again with the Yorkshire branch of the British Computer Society for an evening event in York. It's the first event that both branches have held in York and we're really excited to be exploring new territory within the Yorkshire region.

For this inaugural York event, we are delighted to welcome award winning lean, change management & organization development consultant Ben Salder as our main speaker. Ben will lead a session on how to run successful IT change implementation projects.

Have you ever developed the best technical solution and planned the implementation to the nth degree only to find that the feedback you get is “This new system’s rubbish!”

The technical and process elements of the plan often becomes the focus of systems implementations, even when the initial intent was to bring about business change. 

The importance of engaging with the business and gaining real buy in from those who will be operating the new system can be considered secondary to achieving project deadlines around the system design and implementation.  This in turn leads to a business which is not bought into the change and therefore not mobilised in time to maximise the potential that the new system can bring. With all this in mind, Ben will look at the lessons learnt from change programmes of major IT implementations.
