Thank you for your interest in this event, but registration is now full. We hope to see you at future ACMP DC Speaker Series Events!

Description: Have you had to implement a change that your sponsor doesn't care about, where your change network is non-existent and/or your users actively resist? If you haven't, then consider yourself lucky. However, most change practitioners will face these challenges over the course of their careers – even multiple times. In these cases, you have to get creative with your change approach in order to produce a successful change that is adopted and utilized.

In this session, we will go through a change at a large organization that was actively resisted at all levels. The speaker will discuss the
framework and various approaches for the change effort. You will hear how the change effort engaged each of the critical levels in the
company to ensure that buy-in was obtained to the change and, ultimately, supported by the company.

Speaker: Jason Dunn has nearly 30 years of experience in leading project and program changes of all sizes.  He has extensive expertise in optimizing processes and organizations and is passionate about driving lasting organizational and cultural change that features engagement across all levels. He has assessed and led continuous improvement efforts in over 50 different companies, most of which were driven at the CxO levels.  In addition, he developed an organizational assessment process that looks to improve overall organizational effectiveness in a quantitative manner.  As part of this work, he has stood-up PMOs as well as assessed and improved existing PMOs.  Currently, he is serving as the Director of Enterprise Planning and Portfolio Management at CareFirst.  He is a PMP, Six Sigma Black Belt, CSM, CSPO, and Certified ProSci Change Management Trainer.

Registration will be $20 for ACMP DC Members and $30 for non-members. 

Please note that this event location does not allow for walk-in guests - only people who register by will be able to get in. Registration will close on August 6th.
