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.

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
