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 Status Quo Problem

by Jon Quigley, Shawn P. Quigley

Integrating Change Management with the PMBOK® Guide for ECM Solutions

by Douglas Calem, PMP

This paper advocates for a shift in approach to change management, from the tactical to the strategic, in which change management is integrated into a project management framework for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) implementations. Preparing a client for change is a good business practice that makes strategic sense—both for the client and for the organization implementing the change.
