Change Agent Development

During the 2013 Change Connect Symposium produced by the Association of Change Management Professionals Pacific Northwest Chapter, we facilitated a workshop on finding and developing change agents. In the workshop, about 40 change management professionals divided into six groups to list their collective thoughts on four issues.

The four issues are

  1. Required competencies of a change management professional
  2. Sources of change management talent
  3. Activites to develop change management competency
  4. Compensation and retention activities

This is the third of four blogs on the results. How do you develop the competencies required of a change management professional?
