As we enter 2009, some 25 years after change management was first introduced as a formal tool for managing people through change, we are now seeing a broad adoption within business and government of structured change management processes. The strength in the deployment of change management is evident in the overall growth in revenue in change management products and services, the creation of practice areas by consulting firms, the commitment by companies to create formalized job roles and training, and research work that identified change management as the missing success factor for change. Overall, the deployment of change management is strong and growing. In this "State of the Union" address on change management, I share my personal observations and philosophy, as well as a few of the trends we at Prosci see in this field. Observations and philosophy 1. Change management is both a process and a competency From the process perspective, more projects are deploying change management as a structured approach for managing the people side of change. To ensure consistent use of change management going forward, organizations also need to "hard wire" the application of change management by setting investment thresholds that trigger: a. a requirement for change management to be applied on that project b. dedicated change management resources as part of the core team c. an integration of change management activities into the project plan

he journey to organizational improvement involves a major investment. Any executive deploying Six Sigma within their organization can describe the plethora of time, effort and money spent in bringing such an initiative to life. There are questions about organizational dynamics to consider: Who will serve as Champions, Master Black Belts, Black Belts and Green Belts? Will they engage in Six Sigma projects on a full-time or part-time basis? How will the selection process work? How will Six Sigma be communicated to management and employees? Will the organization reward employees for improving performance? Who will conduct the training? How will the organization measure success?

Background Gordon manufactured two styles of fiberglass boats: one for water-skiing and pleasure, the other designed specifically for bass fishing. Both boats were manufactured on the same production line, switching between the two models as orders and demand shifted. Problem Business was booming. Obviously, that's the goal of any business so long as you can fill orders promptly. They were selling boats as fast as they could make them, about two boats per eight-hour shift. So they added a second shift running from 4:00 pm until midnight. At first, this second shift was unable to finish two boats per shift but caught up after several weeks.
