Organization Change Management for Project Teams
Delivering your project within scope, schedule, and budget is not success—having your project’s output adopted shows success. Whether you are delivering a process for HR, creating a new model of cell phone, or implementing a new ERP system, if the end user fails to see value in the deliverable, your project is a failure. Most project teams members, however, are focused on maintaining scope, schedule, and budget, are far removed from the end-user and have little concept on how to persuade someone to use what they are developing. The fact of the matter is, though, that involving the end-user in the initial stages of the project they can help ensure the tangible product is adapted and enhanced to create the value needed for adoption.
