Building Change Management into Strategic IT Plans
Minneapolis (PRWEB) May 13, 2008
Knowledge Infusion, the recognized consulting authority on human resources, talent management, and emerging technology solutions that drive human capital management business value, today announced that Knowledge Infusion CEO Jason Averbook will participate in a panel discussion, "Building Change Management into Strategic IT Plans," at Corporate Executive Board's 2008 Urgent Issues Conference.
As a recognized leader in helping organizations adopt and inspire their organizations to adopt talent management technologies, Averbook will participate in the panel to discuss how increased change management planning can help organizations shorten implementation cycles, increase buy-in, and reduce consulting engagement costs. Other panelists include Karen Wilson, Director of Washington Federal Practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Kristin Cooke of Booz Allen Hamilton Consulting, and Mohamed Elansary, Director of IT Professional Services at Corporate Executive Board.
"Organizations today are deploying HR and talent management applications to their entire workforce, not just to HR administrators," said Knowledge Infusion CEO Jason Averbook. "Now, more than ever, it is imperative to have a holistic change management plan that accounts for the people, processes, and technology changes necessary to gain user adoption."
"One of the most challenging--and often forgotten--phases of a new technology deployment is helping the full spectrum of users--from power HR users to employees to senior executives--understand how it will benefit them," said Vice President of Knowledge Infusion Execute Services, Bonnie Tichman. "Deployment, marketing, and change management is traditionally not an expertise of HR, which is why organizations utilize Knowledge Infusion Deployment Excellence services to ensure that a strategic focus is placed on not only rolling out a new solution, but more importantly, on long-term adoption and ROI."
Corporate Executive Board's 2008 Urgent Issues Conference gives attendees exclusive access to the leading strategies on the challenges of budget allocation, workforce planning, and customer attraction and retention during a down global economy. The conference takes place May 12-13, 2008 at McCormick Center in Chicago, IL. To learn more visit: http://www.conferences.executiveboard.com/index.html
