Define. Communicate. Change. Progress.

Leadership

Leadership and sponsorship is the responsibility of executives and senior managers in the organization who authorize, fund and charter the top-down organizational changes that end up as projects or initiatives. Both the business and the technical teams have much at stake. Coordination across both teams can ensure success.

   • From an organizational perspective, leadership is key in establishing the strategy and direction. Effective changes are clearly aligned with the vision and strategy of the organization.

   • From a project perspective, leadership must support both the project management side (the technical activities to manage the development of a solution) and the change management side (the specific activities to help manage the people side of change) of a project or initiative. Leaders play key roles in supporting change.

Change Management
Change Management

   • Change management is the set of processes, tools and practices that are used to manage the people side of a change. Change management is the bridge between "implementing a solution" and an organization ultimately realizing the benefits associated with the change.

   • Change management requires two perspectives – an individual perspective (how people experience change) and an organizational perspective (how groups can be managed through a change).

   • Change management is the process of helping employees transition from the current state to the future state (as defined by the change) in a way that minimizes productivity loss, negative customer impact and employee turnover, while at the same time maximizes the speed of adoption and ultimate utilization of the change throughout the organization.

   • Tools like communication, sponsorship and coaching are used to help employees make their own individual transition.

   • Business results are only achieved when employees are involved and participating in the change. Change management is the final element of realizing change effectively.

Project Management

   • Project management is the set of processes and tools applied to business problems or opportunities to develop and implement a solution.

   • One of the key components is having a change defined – you must know what is changing (processes, systems, job roles, organizational structure, etc.) in order to manage that change effectively.

   • Project management involves understanding the tradeoff between the time, cost, and scope of change that can be achieved.

   • Finally, project management is the application of the discipline called 'project management' that is a structured approach for managing tasks, resources, and budget in order to achieve a defined deliverable. Successful changes apply project management tools and processes to their initiatives.
