Agile Hamilton: Thrive on Change – Hamilton – 25 July 2019

What

ABOUT THE TALK:
Change management is about paying specific attention to, valuing, and actively addressing the people side of the change. This includes understanding the change, what’s driving it, who’s involved, who’s impacted and how, and the “what’s in it for me” (WIIFM) for different stakeholders.

In this lunchtime talk, Zhi Lee will share his journey about how he learnt the importance of change management, and provide some examples of how you could adopt a change led approach, to make people feel supported and awesome. Katherine Rive will share key success factors for realising and embedding true change, and her experiences ‘at the coal-face’ of change.

INTRODUCING OUR AWESOME PRESENTERS:

Zhi Lee is the founder of Teamworx, a group of coaches who approach change from 3 perspectives – Ways of Working, Product Agility, and Change Management. He is an Enterprise Agile Coach with Delivery management experience having previously built up the Development team at Bauer Media, and looking after the Delivery Team at Trade Me Property. Zhi’s most recent role was Scrum Master Chapter Lead at Mercury Energy.
