Session Proposal: Project and Change Management for Social Activists

David Lee will be pitching a discussion that asks, what can we learn from the world of project and change management and apply to driving social change?

Project management concepts can give us guidance on how to have conversations about bringing our ideas for change into reality. Change management can help us with understanding who the key stakeholders are and how to engage them, whether they are inside or outside “the tent”.

I’d like to propose a session which walks people through specific ideas for change they are currently working on, and take concepts and tools that have been used to manage projects and change in more structured settings, and apply them to more expansive and dynamic environments. This session would be 20% tutorial on approaches and tools I’ve used in both corporate and non-profit settings and 80% applying these tools to further your own “work”.

What ideas will you bring? Submit a topic of discussion.
