Transformation, Collaboration, Engagement
Join Concordia University as they present the journey that brought 300 independent websites into Adobe Experience Manager (AEM). In order to ensure successful delivery, the project sponsors focused significantly on including change management strategies throughout the project. Philippe Beauregard (Chief Communications Officer, Concordia), Colin Robertson (Senior Advisor, Change and Engagement, Concordia) will share these strategies and the results. Andrei Kalamkarov (UX Designer) will discuss the progress of the website from a visual and user engagement perspective. He will provide a glimpse into Concordia's design strategies, recent projects and custom AEM components.

Topics include:
- Meshing communications and change management principles.
- Generating buy-in for large institutional projects across faculty and staff groups.
- Dealing with resistance quickly and efficiently.
- Team-building and generating innovation quickly during the course of a large project.
