    Kirk Lawrence is program director for the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He spent 30 years as a career Army officer, retiring as a Colonel in 2011. He spent a year in the corporate world before joining the team at UNC Executive Development. At UNC, he builds custom educational courses for federal clients, and every one of these tailored instructional programs has some element of change management training involved. It’s a tremendously important subject, and one in which every high-ranking federal official should be well versed. The last job he held in the military was the Chief of the Army’s Congressional Budget Liaison office, where he was responsible for developing the strategy to deal with the appropriations committees for defense, and to work with the Secretary and the Chief of Staff, Army on those issues with Congress.
