Integrating change management into the project life cycle

The use of change management tools by portfolio, program, and project managers can provide multiple benefits:

  • The transformation programme is not divided between project management and change management, there is one path for achieving business objectives and organisational value.
  • Because change management activities are seamlessly embedded within the project life cycle, change management is not seen as a separate or adjunct activity that can easily be defined or deemphasized.
  • It provides the ability to leverage joint opportunities so that stakeholder engagement activities become more streamlined – for example, providing project sponsors with change leadership coaching along with project status updates.
  • It provides the project team with better insights into understanding organisational impacts and stakeholder concerns, so the team can modify its approach and design decisions and proactively minimise potential resistance.
