Organizational change management teams are a common and critical element of any system implementation or technology adoption project. As embedded groups, change management teams drive change readiness, end-user acceptance, and post-implementation project success by speaking the language of the development teams with which they interact. However, change management teams could benefit and strengthen their ability to deliver by implementing and exercising Agile best practices methodologies. This talk will present concepts for bridging the gap between delivery and change management by discussing how change management teams can leverage agile principles and methodologies (Scrum, Kanban) to enhance team management, work planning, and performance tracking. In this talk the concepts that will be explored include: embedded organizational change teams, product backlog integration, and epic, feature, and user story creation for change management activities.
