Choosing the right framework is vital for success, whether that change is digital, cultural, or organizational. A systematic approach to change management prevents many problems before they start. It also offers a method for dealing with and minimizing the impact of problems that do arise.
For decades, various business leaders have developed frameworks and processes that they use to effect organizational change. Some are simple, some are complex. Some are people-focused, some are process-focused. Each framework has its strengths. And some are more appropriate than others for a given situation.
During the initiation and planning phases of the project/program, it is best practice to assign a professional change manager to create and manage the change management plan, which begins with project initiation and extends through post-implementation.
