On Monday, March 26, Chloe McDonald will host a workshop titled "Old Habits Die Hard – How to Stop Them Derailing Your Change Program." The workshop will focus on the importance of eliminating automated decision making in order to introduce effective and compelling change strategies. Using an institution dealing with Brexit as an example, the workshop will highlight the methods North Highland used to exploit change in the institution's behavior to overcome decades of ingrained working habits. On Wednesday, March 28, David Fisher will host a lecture called "Agile Change Management: One Small Step for Agile Projects, One Giant Leap for Enterprise Agility." The lecture will discuss how navigate the culture-shaking change companies go through when going "Agile". The discussion will highlight successful strategies to shifting change management away from being time-boxed and decision-lagging towards being iterative, distributed and decision-enabling.

In the Community
We want to create sustainable, long-term economic empowerment in the communities in which we work and live. To do that, we support projects and organizations that tackle financial stability, family sustaining employment and housing holistically, because our research shows these core areas can have a bigger and longer term impact. Our annual Day of Giving Back has been another way we have invested in local communities, doing everything from preparing meals, teaching professional workshops, painting playgrounds and more.Learn More
