Strategies for Managing Change - with Carolyn Hulsbergen (Deakin) 17th April 2013

Don't miss this presentation about how to manage change in the research domain by Carolyn Hulsbergen (Deakin University) on Wednesday 17th April 10:00am NSW, Vic, Tas, Qld, (9:30am SA and NT) (8:00am WA) via GoTo Meeting - log-in details below...(places limited to 26).

As more Metadata Stores projects are completed or nearing completion, there is a greater appreciation that these projects are less about software development and more about change management.

Carolyn Hulsbergen is a Senior Business Analyst at Deakin University. She will be leading a discussion about what is changing, who needs to change and how Deakin has recognised that people and active sponsorship are the keys to success. Carolyn will describe in detail what Deakin is actually doing to change the culture of the research environment.

Presentation is expected to be 20-30mins with plenty of time for questions.

For background context, Deakin University has a simple schematic of their Metadata Store On A Page
