Change management digitization pioneer Gavin Wedell joins Management Editor Brian Gorman to explore the role of digitization in change management. Based on a year of experience in the application of a digital platform for supporting organizational change, Gavin estimates that approximately 17% of a practitioner’s time could be shifted from administrative work (e.g., tracking and reporting) back to other change management activities. In addition to how digitization can support practitioners today, Gavin and Brian look at what some of the future possibilities of digitization are for our profession.
