Ask 100 people to define Change Management, and you'll get 100 different definitions. At the end of the day, the definition is just semantics. What really matters is whether you can implement a Change Management program in a practical way that allows you to support your organization in successfully achieving its goals. Whether you're a Change Manager, a consultant, or the tech. guy who was told to "figure out some Change Management stuff," this blog will help address common issues and topics you're likely to run into along the way.

Change Management Resources

I have found over the years that it can be hard to find a good, comprehensive list of Change Management resources.  To help you in your search, I have compiled a set of resources here.*  Check back often, as I will be adding to this list whenever I find new materials.

If you have a web site, book, or other resource you would like to see added here, just let me know in the comments section.
