Aligning Incentives to Combat Change Management

About this event

Barry Mainz is the Chief Operating Officer at Malwarebytes, a company that provides cyber protection for everyone. When approaching his role as COO, Barry looks at the company as a system and strives to make that system work appropriately. Enter change management, the arch nemesis of any COO.

Change management is something every operations professional runs into— how do you get people excited about and on board with a process? Barry's answer is simple; create the context before the content. In this 30-minute session, Barry will walk attendees through his framework for combating change management by aligning incentives cross-functionally.

Attendees are encouraged to bring questions for the final 10 minutes of Q&A.

This event is suggested for professionals in all operations departments looking to expand their careers.
