Event description

Description

Organisations spend millions on transformation programmes and are still not satisfied with the results.

What’s to be done?

More and more studies are coming to the same conclusion.

A better understanding and management of social dynamics (why people behave as they do) provides the greatest opportunity for improving project delivery.

Carole argues that advances in understanding about how the brain works and in particular how we respond to uncertainty cast the challenges in a very different light.

In this session Carole will:

• give you a flavour of what is known about how the brain works

• share key advances in her research and practice since presenting in late 2015

Her aim is to encourage you to reflect on your own situation and experiences and to consider the implications - for you, your projects and your profession.

About the speaker: Carole Osterweil

Carole Osterweil is the founder of Visible Dynamics. She coaches project directors, sponsors and teams to renew their grip on delivery whilst decreasing stress.

With expertise from the emerging discipline of neuroscience, Carole empowers those she works with to understand how the human brain works, how this creates project uncertainty and how we can use this knowledge to enable (rather than inadvertently disable) individual and organisational change. She has recently written Project Delivery, Uncertainty and Neuroscience – a Practitioner’s Guide.

An MBA trained psychotherapist, Carole has led complex change and transformation programmes in the NHS and corporate sectors. Carole is one, of a handful, of coaches working with Cranfield University, the Project Academy, and PA Consulting to support the UK government’s drive to increase senior change, project and programme management capability.

This event will start with a short AGM and the presentation will conclude at 8pm, followed by a networking session with a buffet, wine and soft drinks. The event will close around 9pm. You can attend the AGM for free and leave before the presentation starts.
