Change Management for Project Success

“Change management is a comprehensive, cyclic, and structured approach for transitioning individuals, groups and organizations from a current state to a future state with intended business benefits.” – PMI, Managing Change in Organizations: A Practice Guide, 2013.

By the end of the session, participants will not only have a better understanding of what Change Management is all about, they will also learn the key components of effective change management and their importance to program and project success.
