Getting it Right: Organizational Change Management in Higher Education

June 24, 2020

Free Webinar | 2:00-3:00 pm ET

Change is often difficult and is sometimes forced upon us when we least expect it; now is one of those times. Higher education is being forced to change at an unprecedented speed and scope in response to COVID-19.

The ability to manage change is an AACRAO Professional Competency for all higher education professionals. As such, we approached the research presented in this webinar with a goal of gaining an understanding of individual and institutional experiences managing change in higher education. We are joined by Ellucian’s William Kartsimas, a former university administrator who delivers insight into successful institutional change management projects.

In this webinar we hope you will:

  • gain a perspective on your institution’s readiness for change management as compared to others;
  • compare your level of change management experience with others;
  • understand how change management projects can be supported to be successful and impediments to success; and
  • gain a perspective on the scope, volume and success rate of technology change management projects.
