PMI Bangalore Chapter

PM Enrich Virtual Series 2021

Session topic: Organizational Change Management-  its role in implementing transformation programs


Session Topic context-Why Change management?

It is noted that many organizations are good in project/ program delivery – but fail poorly in transitioning benefits to the business.

Studies undertaken by leading Management Consulting companies have noted that there is an undeniable correlation between project/ program performance, maturity level and change management.

The majority of the best performing / mature organizations frequently apply change management to their projects and programs.

Similar studies have noted that that projects and programs having a dedicated change management tract, had a distinctly higher level of program success in terms of benefits realization.

Now, change is ubiquitous. In the current wave of Agile, organizations also strive to imbibe an Agile culture and change the way they have traditionally managed projects and programs.

Organizational Change management covers what need to be done to drive change in large organizations to make the change real.
