I'll be breaking the check lists down based on what I call the "Pillars of Change." They are:
- Sponsorship (about which I have very strong feelings)
- Stakeholder Management
- Organization Design
As far as I'm concerned, all Change Management activities fall into one of these five pillars. When you create your plan, you pick and choose a set of activities from each pillar based on the needs of your project and organization. You then create a timeline based on when each activity is due (based on the larger project plan) and how long it will take to complete, and voila! You have the beginning of a Change Management plan.
Coming up first: Sponsorship activities
Let Me Know: Do you think these five pillars cover all Change Management activities?
