When leading change, top down change doesn’t always produce the best outcomes - often it’s the informal networks that are crucial in achieving organisational behavioural change. Learn how to lead Viral Change™ in your organisation to achieve lasting large scale change results, featuring a case study from Health Service Executive (HSE).

Join the Change Management Institute and Morgan McKinley for our first event of 2020. When leading change, top down change doesn’t always produce the best outcomes - often it’s the informal networks that are crucial in achieving organisational behavioural change. In this session, you’ll uncover how network science and organisational network analysis (ONA) can help you identify hidden organisation behaviour.  You also learn how to identify, engage and empower the real influencers within your organisations to deliver successful large-scale change.  

Our experts will share their deep knowledge and success in leading Viral Change™, and in particular, we’ll hear about the HSE experience and how they delivered large scale behaviour change across their workforce using these techniques.

Our program for the evening will include:

  1. András Vicsek from Maven7 will introduce the concepts surrounding network science and viral change, as well as tools and techniques to identify your influencers.
  2. Kahlil Thomson-Coyle will present a real world example of how the HSE applied network science to drive large scale behavioural changes across one of the most complex organisations in Ireland.  She will talk about their why, how, challenges and most importantly, the results of the Values in Action program and the impact for those who use the services of the HSE.   

This will be followed by a Q&A session with our presenters, and we’ll close the evening with a light supper and networking opportunity.
