    It is times like these that joining together in professional collegiality is most critical. We are deeply committed to your personal and professional well-being as we navigate through these most uncertain times.

    Ironically, we were supposed to be convening, as a community, at our first annual conference yesterday – ACMP DC: Clear Vision for Change. However, we were all thrown a curve ball and we have been relegated to virtual communication.

    That said, social and professional connection cannot and should not be lost during trying times such as this. As change management professionals, now more than ever, our training, expertise and skills are in high demand. Consistent with our mission, we are committed to connecting, engaging, and caring for our DC, MD and VA change management community. We believe it is essential to join together to ensure we care for one another and the organizations, leaders, teams, and individuals we serve.

    As such, we seek to dedicate our annual membership meeting to checking in with you. We want to know how you are doing. What challenges and opportunities are you faced with amidst COVID-19? How can we support you and one another? Together, we can make it through these difficult and trying times.

    Please join me, our board, our volunteers and all of our ACMP DC members and friends on Tuesday, March 31st from 12:00 – 1:00 pm for a casual, virtual get together to touch base and identify ways we can continue to make a difference as we all navigate through this phenomenal change.

    Take care. Stay well.

    Warmly,

    Katie Prasser

    Outgoing ACMP DC President

    Social Analysis as Viewed by Social Network Theory

    Presenter: Edward Cook 

    Description: Stakeholders can be viewed as a social network with all the influences and human interactions that would happen in any social network, like Facebook. I’ll describe how to analyze the network using a free plug-in tool for Excel called NodeXL. I’ll also describe the psychological impacts on a social network and how to manage them to help the network function well. All of this is based on the course I teach on analytics in the business school at the University of Richmond. This is one of the more popular class days because the tools are easy to learn but provide interesting often unexpected insights into human behavior!

    Facilitation and the Role it Plays in Change Management

    Presenter: Julie Miller

    Description: Effective facilitation is a game changer, and as the facilitator you can have an enormous impact. Having the opportunity to be in a meeting led by a skilled facilitator can be a real gift to any participant. They can make a long day go by quickly, diffuse heated conversations (and we know there are tough conversations that happen around change management), and make you wonder how you accomplished all the deliverables laid out at the beginning with all these "tough" personalities in the room.

    But what exactly is a facilitator, and how do we learn the magic? I’ll cover the definition of a facilitator, share the meeting checklist I use, and discuss ways to identify your disruptors, armed with tactics to diffuse them. With this combination of steps, your change management meetings will be productive, viewed as a beneficial use of time, and they will want to know your magic and how you did it. Use it wisely though, when people find a great facilitator they will want you to play that role again and, hopefully, they will also spread the word that your meetings are fun and effective, and that they won't groan when the next invite comes through.

    The New Age of Change Management is Change Enablement

    Presenter: Krista Schaber-Chan

    Description: What is change enablement and how can it be used to transform businesses today? How does the changing workforce and pace of change impact leaders and what do they need to do to lead their people through a transformation? In this webinar we will explore the role of a leader in today’s business transformations, specifically in how to engage the changing workforce, identify informal change leaders, and conquer failures. Real life lessons learned will be shared and we will also look at new ways of thinking about change management.

    Surviving and Improving Change in Disruption

    Presenter: Dr. Mathew (Mat) Donald

    Description: Recent organizational change research indicates that multiple change factors interact during change and affect the results of change in a positive and negative ways. The result is that change managers need a broad change plan to improve results and avoid potential resistance or pitfalls. The globalized world aides the interconnectivity of change through the internet, social media, and email to name a few. Change is now fast moving, uncertain with great risk due to the interconnectivity and unpredictable nature of so many world pressures like Brexit and trade wars, yet there are so many potential future disruptions ahead that may increase this speed further. The audience will gain an appreciation of how different this disruptive world is and how change managers will be required to change many of their past practices based on the recent research and this new environment.
