    Increased demands for evidence-based processes and practices have heightened the use of performance improvement in both the private and public sector. Yet gaining traction and sustaining momentum for performance improvement in the face of accelerated change, moving targets, and competing resource demands is much like changing wheels in a moving car and is an aspect of practice that is often overlooked and underestimated. This interactive program will highlight threats and opportunities brought about by a new “normal” of frequent business disruptions and constant churn. Select case examples will describe how innovative performance improvement functions are addressing common change challenges to build sustainable value and increased resiliency. Examples will be drawn from research-based practices in Holly’s book, “Learning for the Long Run”, a 2017 Award Winner for Outstanding Human Performance Communication from ISPI.

    Don’t get left behind the performance curve as the speed of change intensifies! Join this program to explore:

    1. Proven practices for building resilience across multiple levels
    2. How your function’s resiliency compares to best practice examples
    3. How to apply best practices to your own change challenges

    Today’s turbulent business landscape, combined with the amount of knowledge needed to sustain high performance amid growing complexity, requires sophisticated information flow across boundaries and evolving change capabilities from organizations, leaders, and performance improvement professionals. Change is at the center of every performance improvement strategy. Yet many performance improvement functions don't handle change well and are vulnerable to threats brought about by a new “normal” of frequent business disruptions, moving targets, and shifting demands from customers who continually want more, better, faster.

    In this interactive workshop, you’ll explore proven tactics for building resilient, adaptive performance improvement strategies, processes, practices, and skills in the face of constant churn and change. These research-based practices are based upon Holly’s book, “Learning for the Long Run”, a 2017 Award Winner for Outstanding Human Performance Communication from ISPI. You’ll discover how diverse professionals from public and private sector organizations have put these practices into action to gain credibility and traction as a strategic business partner. You’ll be able assess your own organizational, functional, and individual resilience and prioritize opportunities for adding and creating sustainable value as a performance improvement professional.

    The success or failure to adapt to unpredictable change is commonly cited as a key factor separating high- and low-performing organizations. Don’t get left behind the performance curve as the speed of change intensifies! Learn and share best practices for shaping readiness conditions, building change resilience, and helping leaders create the change they want to see.

    Come explore critical change challenges with your peers and take a deeper dive into:

    1. Proven practices for building resilience across multiple levels
    2. Resiliency assessment tools, case scenarios, and lessons learned
    3. Mindsets and behaviors that promote and sustain change readiness
    4. Specific areas where resiliency practices can be applied to your own function or a current change challenge

    The world around us is changing – fast. Consultants and organizations alike must develop the skills to adapt to this new environment or face becoming obsolete or irrelevant. Change management is no longer something you implement, It is something you live. It becomes essential to how you operate.

    This is your chance to get an exclusive inside look at the organizations developing the future of our field. This one-of-a-kind event brings together a University (ODU), an ISPI Advocate (U.S. Coast Guard), and a local ISPI Chapter (Hampton Roads) to deliver a unique research based learning and networking experience.
