As certified PMPs, one of our hallmarks is to be able to control scope, manage the schedule, and deliver project requirements on budget. But it is far too often that, although a project is successful in meeting scope, its projected benefits are lacking. The gap between charter and scope can result in significant unforeseen covert constraints to project impact. This leads to a variety of impact issues, ranging from the need for additional sub projects, funding, and configuration change to project management creditability and stakeholder management drama. Closing the Charter Gap is the validation of requirements against benefits and the business case to ensure that the end-product will deliver the financial, service, and cultural result it was envisioned to achieve.

It is over fifty years since we identified project management as a formal subject of study, considered as a practice and knowledge on the subject collated and codified. Since then, it has grown considerably, with many standards being developed, training & consulting organizations set up and information disseminated among many industries and domains. At the same time today, we see there is a prospect of potential changes everywhere. Change, because of the business & political conditions, technology and the environment. The recent pandemic has only exacerbated this. All these happenings are forcing organizations, governments and professional communities to re-evaluate our ways of working to meet the challenges now and in the future. This includes the project management community as well.
An introduction to change management (CM) from the eyes of a project manager who had no formal experience with CM prior to the biggest transformation project of his career.
