Change Management

Critical for project success

What is Change Management 

 

Lets first agree, every project you do, brings about change.

 

If the change is not accepted, sustained, your efforts won't bear the fruits you expected

 

So while the actual change may be a process or a system, but it's the people who need to support the change, adopt the change.

 

You want change to be received by the impacted parties, with minimum resistance

 

Change management is the methodology, process, tools, and techniques used to ensure the adoption of change by people.

Why manage change - The Success Equation :

Q * A = E
Quality of solution * Acceptance of solution   =  Effectiveness of implemented solution

leads to effectiveness of zero

Effectiveness of the solution you implement, is dependent upon quality and acceptance of the solution
