Effective Change Management can’t happen in a silo or separate from Project Management, or any of the other disciplines used to effect change, such as Lean, Six Sigma and Agile.
While Change Management and Project Management are different disciplines, they have the same goal: to deliver change that achieves benefits and outcomes.
The goal of Project Management is to manage the solution, or technical side of change, so that projects are delivered on time, on budget and meet business requirements.
The goal of Change Management is to transition individuals through their own process of change so that they adopt, embrace and use the change and the people-dependent portion of the benefits are achieved.
We recommend integrating and aligning Change Management and Project Management early in the introduction of Change Management to the organisation.
