ChangeQuest’s blog is the company blog for project and change management consultant Ranjit Sidhu, an acclaimed expert in neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and business-wide change.
“I’m interested in how to bring about lasting change for people and organisations,” Ranjit said. “I believe the mechanics of delivering projects is just one aspect of managing change and equally important, is recognising and dealing with the emotional fallout that is inevitable during change. Supporting people through the ups and downs of this journey, enables them to make the personal transformation necessary to make change ‘stick’.
“My aim is to combine thinking from different fields – NLP, project management including Agile, and change management expertise with the latest insights from business psychology, to bring practical ideas and tips that can help project and change professionals in their daily work.”
Ranjit has owned and operated ChangeQuest since 2006, but only started blogging in April 2012. Behind those weekly postings will be a wealth of everyday experiences incurred from over 25 years in either IT or projects. A consultant since 2001, her experience allowed her to hone in on organisational change programmes.Along the way, Ranjit earned accredited trainer status for Change Management Practitioner and Agile Project Management Practitioner, as well as a certified NLP Trainer and a SCRUM Master.
“This blog covers topics and issues that project managers working in fast changing environments are faced with. It also aims to bring together the latest theories and ideas in the project and change arenas, to offer useful insights and tips for getting the job done,” she told us. “I find just normal daily occurrences and events, often trigger thoughts and connections to project or change related topics. I often used to think ‘isn’t this a good idea, I’ll use that the next time I want to explain this’ and then wouldn’t think about it anymore or just forget about it. Writing the blog articles helps me capture these ideas and get clearer in my thinking about topics, which makes it easier to discuss and share them with other people – it’s great when there are lots of ‘a ha’ moments along the way.”
