Change Management - Business Transformation

Oftentimes, Change Management is not planned or emphasized. Organizational, Business, Group, or even Team Changes or Projects should be planned and executed

using Change Management. Experience is needed to help you plan and implement your Change effort right the first time! If you have seen prior efforts that just do not 'stick' regardless of their possible benefit to the organization, you will likely need to apply Business Transformation Change Management strategies and tactics.

How do you identify the efforts that require Change Management planning? Here is a tip: they all do! Some much more than others. A good rule of thumb is to apply Change Management planning and implementation as 7-10% of your project budget... Part of Change Management is Risk Management so that figure can be leveraged as you address your Risks... Please note that for best results your effort will need Changes both during the effort and afterward.
