Aspiring CIOs play STEP UP!™ in Calgary

NEWS RELEASE | April 30, 2012 | Toronto, ON, Canada

Earlier this month in Calgary (AB) Canada, a group of aspiring Chief Information Officers (CIO) played STEP UP!™ – the game of change management by ORCHANGO. Headquartered in Toronto (ON) Canada, ORCHANGO is a firm with world-class expertise in change management that specializes in helping organizations adapt to change.

“Since 2004, we have been helping Leaders Beyond® develop the next generation of Chief Information Officers (CIOs),” declared ORCHANGO president Edmond Mellina. “Leaders Beyond’s programs are intense, relevant, highly practical and experience-based. These are also the key attributes of STEP UP!™, our game of change management.”

“In early 2011, when we showed a prototype of the game to the folks at Leaders Beyond®, they got very excited about it”, continued Mellina. “We decided to integrate STEP UP!™ into their highly-rated IT Executive Leader Program and to run a pilot. The program was already featuring a session on change management by ORCHANGO, so our team re-designed it around the STEP UP!™ game.”

“We ran the pilot in April last year [also in Calgary]. It was a home run”, continued Mellina. STEP UP!™ is now one of the highlights of Leaders Beyond’s IT Executive Leader Program.”
