Key considerations

Sequencing change to stick
The pace of change: Concurrent &
Transformational Change Management
Case study 1:
Ticked all the boxes, but the change didn't stick
The concept of change
driven release management
Case study 2:
When the stars align, the change is forever
The pace of change for organisations has shifted
dramatically, with the need for companies to
remain relevant and competitive in the market.
In order to realise this, companies are enacting
multiple, often concurrent and transformational
changes. Whilst some organisations have seen
great success with this, more often then not the
changes they seek to bring about either never
realise or don't sustain.
In order to successfully land and sustain
concurrent or transformational change, effective
sequencing and release management of the
changes in paramount to making it stick.
This session will seek to explore the critically of
release management in change, understanding
how best to sequence change for effective
sustainability and what to consider when
influencing Executive stakeholders to achieve
the desired outcome.

Local government in an ever
changing environment

Responding to changes –
do and don’ts

Ensuring change outcomes are achieved

Local government operates in a range of
complex and changing environments. As a
result, councils require a high level of flexibility
and creativity to respond to increasing
demands for improved and higher quality
services with limited or reduced resources.

A top down approach to organisational change
have seen many failures over the years with
a realisation that change is better achieved
through a bottom up approach.
Careful planning, clear communication and
achieving buy-in from all levels of a council are
but a few ways to achieve successful change.

Aligning HR and Communications
to achieve success
You only need to open a newspaper or turn
on a TV to see that the business environment in
Australia is changing, with a significant shift from
a focus on growth to productivity. ‘Downsizing’,
‘layoffs’, ‘restructuring’, whichever term is used,
this is always a difficult time for companies and
employees alike.
It becomes deeply personal, emotional and
turbulent for everyone concerned. It also
presents a unique communications challenge.
Communicating its necessity to employees
is particularly difficult. Maintaining company
culture is even more challenging.
As Australian companies and employees come
to terms with this new operating environment,
how will companies maintain company culture
and engage effectively with employees at a
time when most are going through significant

Classical theory in practice today

We are on the edge of a cultural evolution

revolution, with mass off-boarding of resources,

It is no longer enough for program sponsors and
