Change management can be defined as the process, tools and techniques to manage the people side of change, to achieve the required outcomes, and to realise the change effectively within the individual change agent, the inner team and the wider system.
In essence, change takes place on three levels: The self, them team or the (small) organization and the wider system that surrounds the team or the organisation.

We offer 3 basic products in change management
Change Management Process Facilitation.
Potential clients are any type and size of organization that is planning to undergo a change and wants to manage all possible risks, including the people-related risks in ensuring that the desired end state is achieved.
The product consists of a process, associated tools and techniques supported by first hand knowledge and experience in human and organizational behaviour.
The Change Management process has three distinct phases, all of which has specific defined goals and outcomes and for which specific actions, tools and techniques are applied. The three phases are not rigid and mutually exclusive, but they do provide the necessary focus for the planning and execution of activities. The three phases are:
These phases are easily integrated with typical project phases, from Start-up and Planning phase; to Solution Implementation phase.
The ideal model, especially in larger companies, is to co-operate client resources in the planning and execution of change management interventions. This has two major advantages, namely it brings company own knowledge to the table which make it easier to develop customize interventions, and secondly, it facilitates knowledge transfer to the company.
