A project is deemed medium when it represents opportunistic change. This type of change is most often externally driven and is the result of scanning the external environment for opportunities. Sometimes, the opportunity finds the organization and the change conveniently aligns with strategic possibilities. This change can impact a business unit or may have tentacles of change throughout the whole organization. It rarely impacts only a single department. Examples include new systems, new product development, small mergers and new markets. The duration of an opportunistic change can be up to 1 year, but is often shorter as the opportunity must be acted upon quickly to position the organization favorably. The medium project may require a more formal approach to change management and a small Change Management Team of three to seven representatives from the areas of the organization that will be most impacted.
