Flex (On-Demand Consultants) is a premier full-service Technology Staffing organization with a reach coast to coast in Canada. Flex pioneers in contract staffing, fulltime contingency staffing, and executive recruitment. With (patent pending) platform agnostic FlexAR App and an Online Staffing Solution, Flex is committed to provide employer productivity tools and continuously improve hiring experience. Presentation Description As change practitioners, we strongly believe in the positive difference we make. Research studies validate that organizations with greater maturity in managing change are more likely to deliver the highest ROI measures and achieve the largest portion of targeted objectives. Yet, with our discipline still maturing and strong focus on less quantifiable human aspects of change, measuring our contribution within traditional ROI frameworks remains challenging. Without a full appreciation of what we do and the value we contribute, executive support is often insufficient. So what's missing? How can we better articulate and measure our contribution? In this session, you are invited to explore your challenges related to articulating and measuring OCM’s contribution to value creation. You will learn from multidisciplinary considerations and hone in on practical solutions to test in your organization. Since one size never fits all, we will conduct our discussion with specific emphases on different organizational maturity levels and realities. Skill Level:*Intermediate* (3+ Years of Change Management Experience) Session Learning Objectives: 1) Better understand challenges related to effective measurement of Return on Investment (ROI) 2) Explore alternative perspective to better articulating Organizational Change Management’s (OCM) contribution in creating value 3) Have more effective conversations regarding the value directly created by OCM • What to bring • Important to know
