Earthquakes! Fire! Security Breaches! Acquisitions! New Service Offerings! What do these events have in common? They all represent major organizational changes requiring change management proficiency. External events force us to change; understanding how people respond is critical to a successful BCP. As BC professionals, we are in the business of managing immediate and often catastrophic changes. Basic project management can deal with the discreet tasks required to make a change, but it does not account for the human experience. This presentation introduces the structure of change, what we experience when forced to change, and strategies for managing the process.
