Make change a good thing

Organizational change management is a team effort. To fully realize the benefits and maximize value, executives must lead the initiative. This article discusses how project professionals can overcome the difficulties of successfully implementing a business change. It explains how an entrenched culture--or "the way we do business"--makes it difficult for people to accept change. Furthermore, it overviews how any new best practice changes the status quo and the relative power balances within the organization. It then suggests ways to overcome an entrenched culture. Also, it details three ways change leaders can gain general acceptance that the current status quo is not working well for the majority.
