Managing a Global Transformation Go-live during a Pandemic
with Kavetha Velavan

Resilience is the key to any project. Everything is subject to change. And an effective project management team and leaders need to be quick to their feet to respond to the change. To not expect something going wrong in a transformation go-live is a delusion that leads to quandary. When a pandemic strikes your first reflexive reaction to see how to push the go-live out, but when you do not have the choice and papers have been signed and it’s  the beginning of  a new company coming into operation, you have no choice but to prove with practical and methodical approach to attack the situation.

Change is typically hard, but when the team is left with no choice but to do their best and push forward its amazing how well people adapt to the new strategy and do their best to work as a team and prove themselves. Do not tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results. – this is exactly what I found out when Upfield, a new company separated from Unilever had Independence Day on April 1st 2020.

Bring your knowledge, experience, opinions, or just plain curiosity about a Global Transformation Go-live during a Pandemic.
