As the complexity of project management continues to expand, Organizational Change Management (OCM) is becoming more ingrained in implementing projects. This is taking the entire topic of Stakeholder Engagement into new directions. We are moving beyond defining if the stakeholder is an advocate or an adversary, and trying to understand what is driving their position. Understanding the stakeholder’s organizational, and personal, culture is helping project evaluate the stakeholder perspective. This “Cultural Intelligence” of the project manager can greatly improve the effectiveness of the Change Management aspect of a project.

“May you live in interesting times!” This is an ancient and famous Chinese curse. Today, we do live in interesting times: Our environment is characterized to be Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA). Change is constant and happens at a frenetic pace.
