About the Presentation
Some things can be driven from the bottom up and some from the top, but regardless of where it starts, getting a big project, like moving to a single-sourcing environment, off the ground requires buy-in by all those whose process is affected directly or indirectly. Any new project requires new skill sets, new roles, and significant changes that forces productive and successful team members out of their comfort zones. It requires resources, dedication, and sponsorship from the enterprise as well. This presentation will share advice, guidance, and lessons learned from a variety of customers in a range of industries who have made transitions like this work. Learn how to get your ideas across to other people, no matter what project you’re proposing or who you’re proposing it to.
