DIGIT Leader Summit - Leadership of Change Conference Speech

Change Management IT Implementation Lessons Learned


Peter will be speaking to DIGIT Leaders as part of bringing change leadership and senior technologists from across Scotland together for knowledge exchange, discussion and networking.


This conference will contextualise the evolution of IT, examining the changing role of technology within the business and the inherent implications for IT personnel. The event is geared for senior IT, business and finance leaders, providing a unique forum for knowledge exchange, discussion and high-level networking. Leadership must change to adjust to the rapidly shifting digital environment. The business landscape is almost unrecognisable from the turn of the century; entire industries have disappeared while a contingent of new technology giants have grown into the most successful companies of our age. All around us business, technology, media, culture and society have converged. Against this tumultuous backdrop of constant disruption, leaders must be more nimble and responsive, more innovative and exploratory, leading change within their organisations by example.

Peter will speak about change management being the process, techniques and tools to support organisations, leadership teams and individuals going through a change transition from the current state ‘a’ to the future state ‘B’. Many IT programme or project implementations do not realise their intended benefits, and integrated project and change management can improve employee adoption and the ROI.

"Change Waits for No Leader"

This session will discuss 'Ten Change Management Lessons Learned and Tips’ from implementing IT into organisations. Key topics covered:


  • Typical IT Project Overspend and the Impact on Communications and the Change Budget

  • Normal day-to-day operation verses the leadership of change

  • Unmanaged Change

  • Reactive Change

  • Managed Change

“Some organisational leaders see their role in a major improvement and change as starting with signing the finance approval and finishing with sending the briefing e-mail with an attached PowerPoint presentation. A while later they wonder where it all went wrong when there is no ROI”

When and Where: 21st June 2018, Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh, UK
