Topic: Change Management

Change management is formally addressing and managing changes, moving the object to be changed from a current state to a desired state. For Project Managers, it is a way to rationally handle change within the project – often due to unforeseen events. How does this activity easily plug into the project's organizational environment, and what strategies can keep you, the project manager, wearing the hero's crown.
