Change Management

Organisations move through a number of identifiable stages as they grow and develop.  In some cases, these changes are planned, in others they are unplanned.  Sometimes the forces for change come from within the organisation and at other times they will be caused by external forces or influences.  The need for organisations to meet and to cope with changing conditions requires innovation, creativity and flexibility.

Change relates to organisational improvement and is necessarily and integral component of all continuous improvement activities.  It involves seeking out and developing new opportunities plus discarding old and non-value adding processes, products or procedures.  Planned change is likely to be successful change, whereas unplanned change often results in chaos.
