Managing change the project management way

Keeping a competitive edge in a rapidly changing and complex business environment is difficult, and requires the ability of an organization to implement change successfully. This article discusses five common types of business changes and offers project management strategies for implementing them. The five types are: changing procedures, setting responsibility matrixes, changing processes, reorganizations, and partnering. Change management methodologies can be used to identify stakeholders, sponsors, and change agents, and all three groups should be included in the contract development process. Once there is consensus on an integrated solution, project management skills and the elements of the PMBOK® Guide can be used to work the plan and implement the project.
