“If you’re working at a Company and see changes that need to be made and you have no way to suggest/affect change, you’re at a broken company. You’re frustrated; and your company doesn’t stand a chance,” explains Digital Book World Conference Council Chair Mike Shatzkin of The Idea Logical Company. “Change can’t always originate from the C-Suite: it has to come from the ‘rank & file’ and C-Suite needs to embrace it. Everyone needs to be a change agent especially in an industry in transition like ours.”
Carolyn Pittis, who has been on the cutting edge of organizational change in publishing during her more than 25 years at HarperCollins, will lay the groundwork for 3 breakout sessions in her main stage presentation: Change Is Good: How to Get Your Organization Moving Faster. Breakout sessions will address the 3 components of a successful institutional change strategy: people, process, and technology.
- Change People: How to Design a Culture of Growth–Build a publishing team for the future, one vastly different from the past, and from today. Learn which jobs and functions are needed, and which are no longer viable as is in today’s world.
- Change Process: How to Improve Team Productivity–Real world examples to become more agile, increase your workflow collaboration, and drive speed to market. Learn these best practices to seize opportunity, survive, and thrive.
- Change Technology: How to Find and Select (The Right) Tools–If you’re saddled with legacy systems, and your team struggles to modernize antiquated processes, these new options will help you make informed choices about where to invest your time and your Company’s money.
