The promise of new information technology and process innovation is great; unfortunately, so is the percentage of such projects that fail due to process misalignment, project management shortfalls and/or staff rejection. Why? Because the challenge of implementing change is as great as the challenge of creating innovative business process/IT solutions.

This seminar will arm you with a powerful combination of "soft" skills and "hard" skills to help you deploy solutions, integrate new procedures into day-to-day operations, and gain buy-in from varied stakeholders and skeptics.
