On Wednesday, June 13th, Joshua Peskay, RoundTable's Vice President of Technology Strategy, will be presenting a session on change management at the Nonprofit OpCon event hosted by New York Nonprofit Media.
We’ve all heard the (over two-thousand year-old) adage that “...change is the only constant in life.” Today, however, even the pace of change is accelerating at a dizzying rate. If you are going to streamline processes, that means making changes and change is hard. In fact, resistance to change is often cited by leaders as the biggest obstacle to making organizational improvements. Why is change so hard? And more importantly, what can we do to make it easier? This presentation will look at how differing perspectives challenge our efforts to effect change and what we can do to put ourselves and our organizations in the best position for success in making change happen.
