on-demand webinar
by Donna Brighton

Everywhere you look, there are references to culture. The April edition of the Harvard Business Review featured numerous articles on the topic of culture.

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.

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.

Change Management: Shifting the Paradigm

by Kenneth Darter, PMP

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

People often avoid difficult conversations, or they botch them. Do you need to confront people about their behavior, but you aren’t sure what to say? Don’t put it off. To plan for difficult conversations, remember to use the “WAC” technique.
