Event Summary

Length: 1 hour 30 mins

The delicate balance between change fatigue and continuous improvement

Our Executive Roundtables are designed to engage and inspire senior executives whose organizations are on a transformation journey. Each month, a small group of IT and transformation executives are invited for exclusive discussion and networking with peers.

Hosted by Tasktop CEO Dr. Mik Kersten, the next roundtable focuses on the growing prevalence of “change fatigue.” Mik will be joined by Dominica DeGrandis, author of bestselling Making Work Visible and Principal Flow Advisor at Tasktop. The confidential and interactive session includes an open dialogue around leveraging the Flow Metrics to combat cognitive overload, as well as insights and shared experiences from the group.

Key discussion points will include:

  • Continuous change is now business as usual and in order to adapt, it’s time to frame your mission differently
  • Why it’s a mistake to treat change like an event rather than a culture
  • Measuring cognitive overload with Flow Metrics and enabling discussion for improvement
  • Getting buy in for support from leadership and organization-wide
