What is Change Management?

25th November 2020

Change usually isn’t an easy thing for most people and organizations but it is an inevitable part of business. Fortunately, there are professionals that help individuals and organizations handle change, and they are the experts in the discipline of Change Management.

Change Management Defined

Change management is the discipline that guides how we prepare, equip and support individuals to successfully adopt change in order to drive organizational success and outcomes*. This usually does not consist of one seamless step, but multiple different events stacked together to execute and sustain the overall change. Change Management Practitioners are experts in guiding people through change, paying close attention to navigating skeptical behavior, mitigating risk and making transitional periods as painless as possible leading to adoption.
