Topic Description
Every project delivers a change that directly or indirectly impacts certain human beings – end users.

Success or failure of the project depends mostly, if not always, on those impacted users. The presentation is about how to handle the changes in a humane manner and ensure success of the projects.

The points to talk about are how human beings resist the change, how to influence them, what happens if such considerations are not taken into account while planning, executing and delivering the project outcome(s).

Expected Take-away
In a nutshell, the presentation aims at putting the project managers into the end-users’ perspective and see from their view point how the change is going to impact them.
Thereby, it is likely to help the PM’s to always consider the human element that gives more chances to succeed in delivering the change.
