About Ron Leeman

Ron Leeman has been involved in “change and process” work for more years than he cares to remember.

In 2012, Ron was bestowed with a “Change Leader of Tomorrow” award by the World HRD Congress “in recognition of my remarkable progress in initiating changes enough for others in the same industry to follow my example”. Ron is firm believer in knowledge transfer and now wants to share his vast knowledge with those who are considering getting into or at various stages of “change” and/or “process” work or those working on specific Projects wanting to gain practical insights into “how to” type situations.

Measuring Business Readiness & Adoption

What is Business Readiness and Adoption? Would you talk to someone who isn’t paying attention? Would you make a movie if you didn’t know who would watch it?

Human Resources and Change Management

There are currently many debates on Social Networking sites (specifically on LinkedIn) about the integration of Project Management (PM) and Change Management (CM) and whether the two can actually be successfully carried out by one person.

Change Management – Do You Need to Be Certified?

I suppose it depends on which definition you want to use … to be certified as “insane” or “endorsed authoritatively as having met certain requirements?” If it is the former, having been a Change Manager for many years, I sometimes think you have to be certified as “insane” given everything thing you have to deal […]
