Organizational Change Management
Alumni Spotlight: Alexis Hancock
Recent Milano alum Alexis Hancock (OCM ‘13) is a software engineer at CBS Local Digital Media Group. In her professional life, Alexis combines her knowledge of the latest web technologies with all she learned as a student in the Organizational Change Management (OCM) program. It was always part of her plan to add change management skills to her technological background. We wanted to ask her about that.
How does change management add value to your high-skilled tech job?
It added the element of being able to sense and prepare for upcoming changes in group dynamics. The development team I am on is currently changing processes and adding new people. As an engineer, it’s very easy to get isolated in one’s work and just “go with the flow” and brace for the storm of frustrations that will come with not being engaged. The OCM program actually has instilled in me the courage to just go ahead and take action in change rather than just letting the project managers and senior engineers handle all the heavy lifting.

E-Discussion on Post-2015 Development Agenda
Imagine the world you want in 2050. What changes will be necessary to put global development on the
path to building a more just, equitable world? The United Nations system is working with governments
and civil society to build on the momentum generated by the MDGs, and to design an ambitious post-
2015 development agenda that delivers a sustainable future for all.
As part of this work, the Equator Initiative will facilitate an online e-discussion, co-hosted by UNDP
and UNEP, on the role of local empowerment and environmental sustainability in the post-2015
development agenda. This discussion will take place from May 13-26 2013. Its objective is to facilitate an open dialogue that brings together a multitude of voices to stimulate creative thinking, and begin to generate consensus around how best to reflect environmental sustainability in the post-2015 agenda.
This is is a unique opportunity to make sure that community-based action, innovation and empowerment are at the centre of the development agenda beyond 2015. Milano students and faculty are encouraged to lend their voices to the global conversation. Once open, you can post a response and participate in the discussion here.
