A Couple official definitions of “Change Management” are: The management of change and development within a business or similar organization The controlled identification and implementation of required changes (can include a technology solution) I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly of change management. At one point, as a project manager, I was against everything that had to do with managing change.

I often hear from CRE executives that they don’t have a strong tie to the CIO and the internal IT organization.
