Organizational Change Management (OCM) Workshop

When an organization decides to embark any organizational change, it asks its employees to adopt and trust an unfamiliar new way of doing things. While the “technology side of change” gets most of the attention, executives often underestimate, and fail to properly account for, the “people side of change”.

  • Common misconceptions of change management

  • Applying change management at the organizational level

  • Impacts of poor change management, and benefits of successful change management


Numerous organizations have relied on our OCM experts to implement positive change. In this workshop our OCM experts will share best practices and answer your questions based on their deep knowledge and practical experience.

Digital Modernization Workshop

Digital or IT modernizations are complex endeavors that upgrade technology to align it better with organizational needs. While the Software Vendor (SV) and Systems Implementer (SI) are primarily focused on key activities involving technology, there are several activities they expect the client to address. These are critical steps encompassed in the modernization process and require significant skills and effort.


Some of these activities are:

  • Vendor selection and contract negotiation

  • Business case development or a Project Investment Justification (PIJ)

  • Business requirements gathering and creation of a Request for Proposal (RFP)

  • User Acceptance Test (UAT) plan creation and test execution

  • Organizational Change Management (OCM)

  • Training strategy, planning, and delivery

  • Legacy data migration

  • Independent third-party oversight to align and lead all internal/external stakeholders


What your team will learn:

  • Holistic view of the entire Modernization journey

  • Understand the motivations and perspective of the external stakeholders involved (software vendors, systems implementors, training providers, specialized service providers etc.)

  • Assess your organization’s ability to meet the skills and bandwidth demands

  • The importance of staffing critical roles in a timely manner

  • Impact of not completing vital activities effectively


MSSBTA has decades of experience delivering these “Digital Modernization Success Services” to commercial businesses and public agencies. We fill critical gaps in client skills and bandwidth to ensure that critical roles are staffed and activities on the critical path are completed. Our consultants are experts at making sure your technology modernization initiative provides the business value expected from it.
