Joanne Flinn of Shelton Consulting is Honored with “Change Agent & Transformation Leader” Award

Business Change Specialist Joanne Flinn is awarded by World Human Resources Congress for her remarkable work and leadership in business change management, and saving organizations pain, money and time upfront through Success Diagnostics™ tools.


World Human Resources Congress has announced the winners of the 2012 World Change Management awards.  The Awards & Academic Committee honor the “Change Agent & Transformation Leader” award to Joanne Flinn of Shelton Consulting for her remarkable work and leadership in business change management.  Joanne Flinn is one of the leading Business and Project Success Consultants in South-East Asia specialized in the creation of value from business change and IT projects.

In an interview, Joanne Flinn said: “The pressure for our work to do more that simple ‘to task, on time, to budget’ is increasing exponentially. At the same time, the voice of the business loudly demands more from us as funds are getting scarcer and scarcer. This has implications to us both as individual change managers and as a profession.”

Joanne Flinn continues: “As a Singaporean based Australian, I’m honored and delighted to receive this award. I’m proud of the change management profession and how it can contribute to better people, planet and profits.

To have my work in saving organizations pain, money and time upfront through Success Diagnostics™ recognized along side other global luminaries like Professor Colin J Coulson-Thomas from the UK and Dr Adil Malia of India is an appreciated privilege.”

Mastering change in today’s hyperactive business environment is a challenge. Globally a minimum of 27.5% of business change projects investment is written off. Inadequate change management is significant contributor to this wastage of personal passion, corporate cash and environmental resources.  Over 3 billion dollars a year is wasted in India alone from business project failure – this occurs even with good project management and good change management.  According to Joanne Flinn, this is predictable and preventable by addressing eight specific change issues in more subtle and pervasive manner than traditional methods.
