Change Management - A Key Facilitator for Project Success

PREMIUM on-demand webinar
by S. Ramani

Many projects do not fail due to technical reasons.

A Smooth Sea Never Made a Skillful Sailor – Committing the Change Team

PREMIUM on-demand webinar
by Simona Bonghez

The journey is not a common one, the obstacles are diverse, and the result is unique each time. This very practical presentation provides examples on how several group dynamics theories could contribute to raise the commitment of the Change Team and demonstrate how tangible results can be obtain by applying accessible tools.

Resource Change Analysis Tracker

by Andy Jordan

This template is designed to assist project managers in preparing for a change in resources in the project team. PMs are frequently faced with the substitution of team members, and this template helps to identify the areas where the change can be most easily accommodated and areas where additional work may be required to prevent the change from causing difficulties for the project.

Project Change Request Form

by Ralph Moore

Need to initiate a change on your project? Use this form to get started. It includes sections for a detailed description, justification and potential impacts of the change on various items like scope, requirements and cost.

Program Change Request Template

by Andy Jordan

This template is a simple variation on a change request that focuses on the impact on schedule, effort and dollar budgets. It is best suited for projects with lots of activity around the critical path where any change is likely to impact the program’s ability to deliver. Although structured as a program-level request, it is identical to a project request if the wording is changed. It is designed to be used with the Change Control Log Template.

One Solution for Project Success: Project and Change Management in the PMBOK Guide

white paper
by Thomas Luke Jarocki

Project management is primarily an integrative job. This includes the integration of change management principles and activities throughout the project lifecycle. Unfortunately, many practitioners--regardless of their backgrounds--find it difficult to integrate strong change management principles and techniques with project management practices. PMI standards hold many of the keys required for developing structured and robust change management activities without the need to create a separate or adjunct change management plan.

The Changing Customer

by Braden Kelley

It feels as if the world is changing faster than ever before because the expectations of our customers—and our expectations as customers—are changing faster than ever before. Why?

Chewing Change: Consumption for Effective Change

by Debasis Roy

Just receiving work packages for change initiatives is not enough. The teams need to know what is expected from those work packages, and they need to undertake tasks to achieve those results. The processing tasks—the actual work that is done—is akin to chewing what is bitten off, with the express intention of deriving the benefits that the change initiative proposes.

Let’s Start a Change Revolution

by Braden Kelley

The pace of change is accelerating, and for many people (and companies) things are changing so fast that they feel overwhelmed and retreat to the familiar instead of embracing the change. In fact, we are approaching a tipping point where what is becoming interesting to the young is not the new, but the old.

The Case for Frank Conversation

by Suresh MK

Innovation is Change

by Braden Kelley

Innovation is change, or at least, innovation requires change. Have you defined a common language of innovation? For companies looking to build a sustainable innovation capability, this is an important first step.

The Key to Greater Organizational Agility

by Braden Kelley

Companies seeking to cope with the pace of accelerating change are looking for ways to go faster, and managers in non-technical disciplines have become increasingly infatuated with the agile software development methodology. Agility sounds like a good thing, and agile marketing sounds like it must be better than regular marketing...but is it?
