Change Management Practitioner Excellence Award Winner

Angel Emerson
Strategic Director, Fifth Third Bank

angel-emersonAn ACMP Midwest Chapter member who is recognized as a thought leader who has proved outstanding service to and accomplishments in the field of change management. A person who demonstrates successful contribution to special project that drives performance in his/her organization.

Angel has been able to ground structured change management practices in a very challenging, culture changing Enterprise-wide program named “Transforming Fifth Third.” She designed many tools to support the ambitious outcomes the program expected. One example is a Readiness checklist that identifies all the stakeholders and obtains their sign-off and comments before formal implementation. This allowed first to implement the multiple work streams operations as planned, but also identify improvements for post-implementation and ensuring better adoption. Thanks to her exceptional leadership, not only the organization has executed the change strategies flawlessly, but many of the implementation and sustainability activities she led through are now being adopted as standard practices for all major programs.
