Braden talks about his work as an innovator and a Social Business Architect. “I am a Social Business Architect, which means I work with businesses to create better connections with their customers, with their employees and partners through the use of digital media, email, social media, those kinds of things.”

Braden is energized, leading his audience to the beginning of their journey of innovation. “Are you ready to innovate? Are you ready to fight through some of the necessary blows you may suffer, and some of the flesh wounds you may encounter as people fight against the new ideas you may try to embed and grow within your organization?”

    Charting Change: A Visual Toolkit for Making Change Stick
    Research shows that up to seventy percent of all change initiatives fail. Let's face it, change is hard, as is getting an organization on board and working through the process. One thing that has been known to be effective is on boarding teams not only to understand this change, but to see the process and the progress of institutional change.

    Charting Change will help teams and companies visualize this complicated process. Kelley has developed the Change Planning Toolkit™ and the Change Planning Canvas™, which enable leadership and project teams to easily discuss the variables that will influence the change effort and organize them in a collaborative and visual way. It will help managers build a cohesive approach that can be more easily embraced by employees who are charged with the actual implementation of change. This book will teach readers how to use this visual toolkit to build a common language and vision for implementing change.
