This workshop is a half day and offers an interactive, shared learning environment.  The real-world case study used throughout the class demonstrates how to cope with and properly manage change.  Change happens, and sometimes it feels like trying to nail Jell-O to a tree.  This half-day workshop shows the importance of change control and that managing it effectively on your project or in your daily job is essential to overall success.  Real-world examples and case studies are used to demonstrate what happens when change is managed properly and the challenges and heartburn that occur when it isn't.
