Did you know that two of the top barriers to successful project implementation are people factors - changing mindsets and attitudes, and organizational culture? Indeed, implementing sector strategies without paying attention to the human element can stop you dead in your tracks. In this session hear from two local areas that have worked hard to shift their cultures, and move staff with all new attitudes into key roles with industry. Learn about their practical and replicable strategies like hiring “Directors of First Impressions” and embracing industry-led thinking that is helping drive these local areas to advance sectors at the ground level– where the rubber hits the road!
