Interesting your questionThanks for sharing
On the subject of change management PMI has 3 practice guides:
1. Implementing Organizational Project Management: A Practice Guide
2. Navigating Complexity: A Practice Guide
3. Managing Change in Organizations: A Practice Guide
I read a book in 1988 where the focus of project management was put onto people, communication and aligning expectations.
Robert K. Greenleaf wrote Servant-Leadership back in the 1950s. Douglas McGregor wrote the Human Side of Enterprise around the same time.
PM associations may have lagged in incorporating the "soft side" of project management within their standards but it was always there...
If I understand your question correctly, I can't answer the historical question myself but I do think you should revise your terminology to aid in a clear understanding.
I think what you are asking is when the concept of organizational change management emerged, as opposed to configuration management. How others appear to be interpreting your question is when the field of PM study started to consider the involvement of the people involved.
If it is when structured PM frameworks started to consider organizational change management as a structured approach, the answer lies in the evolution of those documented frameworks. If it is when people as part of the project became an important consideration, that goes back to when stone-age man used teamwork to hunt large animals and move large stones.
Yes - you are right. I am not looking into team work.
I am looking to understand when the concept of organizational change / considering the people side of change was introduced into the PMI framework.
Historically, I agree, it's been around since before the pyramids or before.
There are many change management models that have come around in the past 50 years - mostly became formalized in the 1950s with Kurt Lewins model leading to Kotter in the 1990s.
However, these were were not incorporated into the concept of project management until recently. maybe 30-40 years ago (just guessing)
I am seeking to find out when this concept (or organizational change) and the impact of projects on people and the use of change management techniques in enhancing project adoption / acceptance / success rate was formalized and added to the PM approach by PMI and Prince II. I am looking for evidence based information as part of my thesis.
Appreciate the support.
Appreciate it. There are several PMI reports that talk about project adoption / success rates depending on change management approach utilized along side project management approaches.
I want evidence based information that discusses the introduction of this within PMI and Prince II.
Thank you for the links. I am trying to find out when the concept of change management as part of project management was introduced by PMI. There is discussion on how change management approaches when used with PM approaches increases project success.When was this concept formalized and adopted by organizations such as PMI within their PM approach.
Appreciate any help in this. Have a good day.
