    Using a Combined Internal & External Project Team to Lead a Major Organizational Change

    We all know the drill -- leaders want a change to occur faster than their staff can do it, or they don't have the expertise among their staff to implement the change, so they hire external consultants to do it. Then after the externals leave the change doesn't really stick.

    This isn't about the externals, it's really about internal ownership. What about creating a partner model that brings in the help and expertise needed, but puts the ownership on internal staff?

    This is exactly what Pacific Life did in a major organizational change effort. Come join us as we learn from Janine Lombardi how she partnered to lead an effective project team for a major organizational transformation project.

    This program will provide:

    • A proven framework for employee-consultant working relationships in organizational change efforts
    • Strategies to create a high-performing project team focused on change management best practices as part of the overall project plan
    • Unique tactics to increase employee understanding of the change and heighten engagement through highly interactive activities

    This program includes a broad overview and discussion of a change model, the case study presentation and discussion, and an opportunity to interact with others who are learning about and implementing organizational change.

    Yeah, that's a lot for 90 minutes, so bring your A-game and come prepared to participate!

    About our Case Study Presenter...

    Janine Lombardi, Founder, J9 Leading Solutions was previously an executive in the real estate industry with experience in operations, training, human resources and organizational development. Presently, she is an organizational consultant and professional speaker offering workshops, keynote speeches and coaching to help individuals grow, teams learn and organizations succeed. Special emphasis on helping companies create competitive advantage through strategic planning, change management and employee engagement.

    It’s Alive! Pump Life into your Virtual Programs with LOLA’s

    DOA Without interaction your virtual programs are Dead on Arrival. Let’s face it, PowerPoint and audio narration leave a great deal to be desired. Bring your virtual programs back to life with LOLA’s: Live Online Learning Activities.

    Increasingly organizations are conducting training webinars instead of face-to-face workshops. Webinars are more cost-effective (which is a polite way of saying cheap) than face-to-face sessions because they save on the travel costs, especially if the employees are located in different parts of the country or different parts of the world. Webinars are also fairly easy to set up without the need for new hardware. Once a webinar is set up, there is no major additional cost for additional participants.

    Many trainers don’t like to conduct webinars and a few refuse to train in this fashion. Their basic complaint is that webinars deprive them of immediate facial feedback and prevent them from conducting experiential activities.

    Fighting the trend is futile and needless!

    Replacing classroom sessions with webinars is the definite trend in the training industry.

    Learn the techniques to increase and improve interactivity in webinars from the gamemaster himself - Dr. Sivasailam Thiagarajan – affectionately known to all of us as Thiagi

    Learn how to:

    • Avoid death-by-PowerPoint data dumps
    • Encourage two-way communication
    • Create a successful environment of engagement for yourself and your participants

    Thiagi is a specialist in designing and delivering interactive experiential activities in training classrooms. For the last decade, he has explored and adapted these activities to the webinar environment. And while it is true that not all face-to-face activities can be ported to a webinar session, there are many creative techniques for adapting classroom activities to a webinar. And there are some training techniques (example: instant polling) that could be conducted more effectively in a virtual classroom than in an actual classroom.

    In this program, he shares these discovered creative techniques adapting classroom activities to a webinar.

    Come and join us for this hour long presentation during the BizSIG where you will discover the power of games, magic, stories, and graphics.

    Please note: Thiagi will be presenting virtually and will not be onsite at ATD-OC.

    About the Presenter:

    Dr. Sivasailam “Thiagi” Thiagarajan is the founder and Resident Mad Scientist at The Thiagi Group, an organization with the mission of helping people improve their performance effectively and enjoyably.

    Thiagi served as the editor of ISPI's Performance & Instruction for more than 10 years. He has written a monthly GameLetter for 15 years; it currently appears as the GameBlog on this website.

    Thiagi has twice been elected the president of the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI), 27 years apart (in 1979 and 2006). He has also been the five-time president of the North American Simulation and Gaming Association (NASAGA).

    As a global nomad, Thiagi has lived in three different countries and has conducted training workshops in 21 others. Earlier in his life, he has been a high-school science teacher, street corner magician, researcher, editor of a professional journal, keynote speaker, college professor, USAID project director, and writer.


    Pre-Thiagi: Room Setup and "Working the Room: Savvy Socializing in Person and Online"

    Hybrid sessions involve both onsite and virtual participants. Currently there are technology limitations regarding software and equipment for the budget level of many organizations.

    In this experiment, we will show you the effect of lighting on webcam images and considerations for setup when producing a hybrid program. And just to make the best use of your time, we will be covering the skills of “Working the Room: Savvy Socializing in Person and Online.

    Our crew for this program will be onsite.

We will then take a break for 15 minutes for our onsite attendees, reset the room and introduce Thiagi at 11:00 a.m. His interactive program will run for an hour. Our onsite attendees will be working as a group during his program, and we may have as many as four online stations to work from in the classroom.

    Companies devote critical resources of time and talent to build the capabilities of employees through training. Some companies use the measure of classroom hours, or “butts in seats” to assess the effectiveness of training. But training is effective only when learners learn – that is, change their behavior. How can trainers facilitate better learning through more effective transfer of learning? What techniques, inside and outside of the classroom, will help learners apply what they’ve learned?

    In the May Trainers Special Interest Group meeting, we’ll focus on how trainers can help ensure their work actually makes a difference = that learners use what they’ve learned to improve performance on the job. We’ll look at actions trainers can take before, during and after a class to increase the chances learning is applied in real life, and that the company experiences the benefits of its training programs.

    About the Presenter:

    Margaret Connery is a trainer and HR professional with MeridianLink, and a long-time member of ATD-OC. She’s been a presenter for the Trainers SIG and the Total Trainer Series.

    As we are all asked to do more with less, the challenge of talent development becomes an even bigger one. We have seen a shift away from a 100% training approach to a blended approach of training, on the job learning, and peer learning strategies. With the world changing as fast as it is, even this is a challenge to keep up... so what are progressive and successful companies doing today?

    Join us as we share insights and best practices from companies focusing on developing the whole person including Google, LinkedIn, and The Seattle Seahawks, who are benefiting from this unique and mindful approach to development. Gain access to resources, videos, and tools that can be immediately used to transform the level of engagement and development you create with your teams. Our program is right in line with ATD's transformation to a holistic approach towards talent development. 

    This program will help you improve your ability to:

    • Apply best practices for developing others beyond the traditional training approach.
    • Recognize opportunities to invest in employees and peers that achieve results and improve performance.
    • Identify key components to a growth mindset and articulate the undesirable results that can come from a fixed mindset.
    • Apply organizational strategies that align purpose with KPIs.
