About X4mis 

X4MIS® is the innovator in the global Change Management market. 

Established in 2017 it has been in development since the founder created the initial methodology in 2006 while leading a change management practice for a boutique UK management consultancy.

We are unique in the global market because all our methodology and training collateral will be made available free to the world.  While we will give freely all our X4MIS collateral, to help fund this initiative we anticipate revenue generation through:

  1. The accreditation of X4MIS change practitioners
  2. Our affiliated consultants delivering X4MIS consultancy and training
X4MIS Change Management Methodology

WE Believe 

  • Organisations are not utilising effective change management practices to ensure their transformation programmes are successful. Research from McKinsey and Company, suggested 70% of all transformations failed without effective change management.  This is often because organisation do not have the necessary resources or budget.
  • X4MIS’s free on-line resources can be used by those organisation which lack resource and budget, empowering those leaders and decision makers in all walks of life, across the globe to enact effective and affordable change.
  • While there is an immediate need by local business, we believe there are global organisations and countries implementing transformation programmes who do not have ready access to change management resources.  We are doing this also in the belief the X4MIS open methodology can have role improving the effectiveness of their programmes and in some way contribute to world prosperity and peace.
