Meet new volunteer Whitney Flight

How long have you been in the Change Management Profession? In the formal sense, I have been an OCM consultant for nearly two years. However, my career over the past 12 years has always involved some role functions and work that aligned very closely to OCM activities – thus my switch into the official role two years ago.
