Change stands for the coordination of a planned transition phase from situation A to situation B. The goal is sustainable change within an organization. Change Management is part of project management. It becomes effective in the corporate strategy as well as in the operative business. It is oriented towards the strategic goals of an organization. Change Management aims at profoundly changing structures, processes and behaviors. The prerequisite: managers and employees must be fundamentally convinced of the need for change.

  • Clear communication
  • Explain necessities
  • Involve employees and stakeholders
  • Qualify for new tasks (training)
  • Set an example of willingness to change
  • Give praise and celebrate successes along the way
