How to Win Change (Management) & Influence People

Difficult projects plague us all – over budget, over time, overwhelming. As burnout lurks, how can you stay ahead of overwrought stakeholders and plan for success?

To explore answers to this tricky question, Cause Craft Consultant Jackie Day led a session entitled “How to Win Change (Management) & Influence People” as part of the all-virtual 2022 Nonprofit Technology Conference hosted by NTEN in March.

Spoiler – Jackie recommends infusing your change management with the secret sauce: staff empowerment. When organizations miss the chance to empower their staff on new processes and systems, they end up with a dusty, expensive information vortex. Hello workarounds, goodbye efficacy!

This session provides a basic change management framework embedded with actionable tactics that support learning throughout the lifecycle of a project. The goal is to inform and empower your stakeholders, making change sticky and sustainable while not maxing out the capacity of the project team.
