Development requires change, and with every change we find obstacles and challenges along the way. In order to thrive in spite (or because) of those challenges, we must not only face them, we must embrace them. This session will discuss challenges that are faced by senior management in LSPs, including how to cope with new technology and future requirements, when and how long we should be resistant to change, and how abiding by changing international quality standards affects client satisfaction.
