    Join us for an all-virtual learning and networking event with some of the brightest change management and product leadership minds. We'll candidly discuss one of the hardest parts of product leadership --- PEOPLE!

    A panel from market-leading companies share their invaluable experiences, lessons learned, actionable Strategies from "real products and projects." An excellent opportunity for us to collaborate and expand our Change Management knowledge and toolbox with practical Product Leadership techniques that deliver business value.

    We'll tackle how to:

    • Achieve a shared belief in product strategy that helps your team/stakeholders support and execute your vision.
    • Create alignment within a dynamic web of competing stakeholder priorities, manage undefined problems in a fast-paced, uncertain, and competitive environment.
    • Address potential political saboteurs and build a coalition with shared norms, language, and processes.
    • Get leadership commitment to your product, sustain delivery, navigate rapidly changing corporate priorities.
    • Build an influential coalition through a compelling product story and a credible road map
    • Cultivate a product culture of cross-functional teams with shared beliefs of their role in your customer's world.
    • Coach your team to identify and amplify the voice of priority users vs. more vocal users.
    • Help leaders (senior and junior) understand the mutual “self-interested” benefits of your product's success.
    • Model how different stakeholders would act based on their beliefs about the product, business, and market.
    • Implement clear communication, task-to-vision alignment and empowered decision-making delegation
    • Avoid dev teams that do not work well together, confused stakeholders interrupting momentum, customer use cases focused on symptoms and not "the real problem," lackluster user adoption, etc.
    • Avoid decelerating momentum, resources wasted on non-value-adding activities, stalled decision making, and cultural friction between misaligned factions.

    • Duration: 90 mins
    • 40 mins: Moderator asks panel questions about their experience on the subject

    Offering our Certification virtually keeps the momentum going for individual’s change projects by providing training opportunities during this stand-still time.

    Prosci has been providing bi-weekly, thought-provoking live interactive webinars for over a decade, as well as VILT to select customers for several years. Providing a world-class experience is one of our core values and this will come to life as we scale our VILT delivery.

    We are employing best practices in the VILT space leveraging our instructors with deep experience in leading both virtual and face-to-face training. These best practices include:

    • To keep participants engaged and focused we will use a suite of virtual engagement tools to include video feeds, virtual brainstorm groups, recorded project presentations, and interactive polling software to capture a variety of inputs in real-time (e.g., assessment scores, brainstorm inputs and planned next actions)
    • We will intentionally track individual engagement and “randomly” call on individuals throughout the program
    • We are keeping the Certification program to a maximum of six hours of synchronous learning per day. The rest of the hours will be done through pre-work, post-work and individual assignments during the 3-day period.
    • All Prosci instructors have gone through a boot camp on the new technology and activities ensuring that we’re all driving to common outcomes
    • We have the ability to use several industry-leading delivery platforms for virtual training. Our primary platforms will be Zoom, Poll Everywhere and the Prosci Portal.

    What You Need to Succeed as a Virtual Learner:

    • Uninterrupted time to focus, just like if you were in the classroom
    • A computer or laptop with high-speed internet connection and webcam capable of showing you by video
    • A functional headset or audio connection that has a speaker and microphone
