9780273720454: Project Managing Change: Practical tools and techniques to make change happen (Financial Times Series)

Are you responsible for getting results? Do you need to get things to change and then make sure that change sticks? Do you want to know the most effective ways to really get things to change – for the better?


Project Managing Changegives you practical, sensible solutions to real business change issues. By combining best practice from change management and project management, it empowers you to select from a range of easy-to-use tools specially designed to uncover and resolve common problems and difficulties. Tested and proven to be effective, the emphasis is on the actual tasks and activities you need to get done to make sure that change happens.


The logical, modular approach makes it easier to apply the advice and guidance to your own unique situation. It helps you assess the scope and scale of the change you need to make and plan what you need to do to make it happen. Typical changes that often mean you need to move from the way you do things now to doing things differently include:

·         Process – following different steps or using different methods to complete a task or activity

·         Product – developing new or improved products or services

·         Technology – using new or upgraded software, hardware, systems or equipment

·         Money – staying competitive in the market; managing with less (or more!) funding
