The Partnership between Project Management and Organizational Change: Integrating Change Management with Change Leadership
Griffith-Cooper, Barber; King, Karyl
Performance Improvement, v46 n1 p14-20 Jan 2007
The nature of project management is change. Even though all knowledge areas in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) are rooted in controlling change, none of these areas specifically addresses the human elements of change. There is a significant distinction between directly controlling change relative to the nonhuman aspects of a project ("change control") and effecting change in the human dimensions of a project through leadership ("change leadership"). This article characterizes the distinctive activities of change leadership and change control and their interrelationship throughout the project life cycle. Although distinct, change control and change leadership are interdependent and mutually supporting--both are needed to support project success. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
