Change Management

Change management is a structured approach to transitioning and aligning individuals, teams and organisations from a current position to a desired future state.  Most organisation-wide initiatives involve some level of change management aimed at helping employees to welcome, embrace and accept changes in policy, process, systems and/or behaviour.  Procurement ‘transformation’ projects are an example of projects with organisation-wide scope. The role and capability of the procurement function is changed through some permutation of changes in people, processes and technology, but for the potential benefits to be harvested, stakeholders need to change behaviours as well as the procurement team.
