Our Change Management Journeys: California Universities Collaborating to Build Change Management Competencies

Presented by: Bridget Wikidal, Director, PMO & Cal State Online Program

The pace of change in higher education continues to accelerate, and challenges are becoming increasingly complex. Change management is a hot topic as universities seek to build change management competencies within their institutions. Change management leaders at the University of California’s Davis and San Diego, and the California State University Chancellor’s Office and Fresno State will share their successes and challenges on their journeys to get there. Topics to be addressed include why and how they got started, the importance and challenges of gaining buy in, leadership/sponsorship as a critical success factor, resources, tools and methodologies, building the in-house expertise, measurements of success and outcomes, and lessons learned.


The next Project Management / Change Management Workshop was presented at the 2015 California Public Higher Education Collaborative Business Conference on October 27-28, 2015 on the UC, Riverside campus.
