Have you thought about what your project is changing? Are you prepared to help others through it? Many project leaders aren't. Focused on time, scope, cost, and the specifics of the project itself, many project leaders forget to put the project in the context of the organization. But if the people in your organization don't embrace the changes driven by your project, at the end of the day, the project will fail.
Effective change management involves anticipating what in the organization is changing, who is impacted, and how they'll feel about it. Change – more specifically, transition – is a process. Understanding the process can help you navigate it faster and more successfully. Planning for change and transition will take the guesswork and panic out of communications down the road. Sinikka Waugh walks you through what really counts in change management:
