Determining the best means of implementing organizational change is half the battle in the execution of change. Understanding external resources and processes aids in achieving a smooth transition.
The gig economy is the newest of business trends driving towards nontraditional employment models. For years now, companies looked at the tradeoffs involved with people who are not classic full-time employees, with analysis of the costs, risks, and company strategy implications.
In this episode of Centric Biz and Tech Talks, we talk to organizational change management practitioner Colleen McFarland about thoughtfully and successfully engaging external resources in your organization. Is the trend of using external resources likely to be reversed? How can you effectively include external resources in your organization?
According to Colleen, it’s critical for success to address the development and use of a resource strategy. It’s all about knowing why you want to use external resources and how to do so deliberately. Colleen takes us through drafting such an approach and keeping it going, all while maintaining accountability from your vendors. Your resource strategy is a tool for communication with vendors and explaining your values and expectations.
Join us to hear Colleen’s insights on these questions and more!
