Managing Change and Transformation

Change management has become a critical component in initiating significant tasks, process and/or cultural change within the workplace. A common definition used for change management is a set of processes that is employed to ensure that significant changes are implemented in an orderly, controlled and systematic fashion to effect organisational change. Change Management includes both organisational change management processes and individual change management models, which together are used to manage the people side of change.

Organizational change management includes processes and tools for managing the people side of the change at an organizational level. These tools include a structured approach that can be used to effectively transition groups or organizations through change. When combined with an understanding of individual change management, these tools provide a framework for managing the people side of change. One of the goals of change management is then to assist the organisation / individual to overcome resistance and to buy into the change initiative.
