security industry changes each time new technologies enter the market -
and while it's one thing to learn how to use those technologies - it's
another thing entirely to assimilate the changes they bring into our
organizations. 'Change Management'
isn't about the technologies that introduce change, its about how we
manage the disruptive nature of those changes. When we've done something
a particular way for a decade, there is a natural reluctance to start
doing things differently. Change Management is about
how we deal with that 'reluctance' and enable our organizations to move
into the future faster, and with less chaos, stress and confusion.

A Step by Step Methodology
The presentation is highly interactive, thought provoking and guaranteed to generate good, deep, discussion about how Change is, and should be, implemented in an organization. It is also, unavoidably fun.
How should we implement Change? It’s a simple enough question, surely there’s a simple answer -- especially since we get to do it so often. Every time we implement a new system or install a new process, we’re implementing Change. Surely there are some things that work, and some things that fail? Surely we’re intelligent enough to sift out the good from the bad? Perhaps.
There are no Silver Bullets in Change Management. No guaranteed, money back solutions. Your Change strategy will depend on the present situation, your past history, the future you’re trying to create and how difficult you make the journey from here to there.
The bottom line is, there is nothing you can say to someone you’re about to layoff which will make them feel better. If you’re looking for such a solution, then you‘re looking for the Holy Grail, it doesn’t exist.
On the other hand, if you’re trying to get a target audience to accept anew way of doing things, a new system or a new set of standards, then there are partial solutions. Solutions which allow the target audience to gain some control over their destiny, while implementing the necessary Changes.
