The management of change in an organization is critical to the success of any system-wide change. It requires carefully orchestrated communication and teamwork between the technical experts, the project management team, functional business experts, executive management and end-user.

Successful implementation of change is dependent on the commitment of each of these groups to identify and communicate what is changing, when it is changing and why it is changing.
