Change Management Toolkit
Change Management refers to the process of transitioning goals, projects, people, or organizations from one state to another. Often change incorporates several of these components but regardless if the change is small or large scale, change management can provide tools in a structured framework and assist in function, staying on budget, marketing, and ROI.

More about the toolkit
While there are a variety of change management frameworks to select from, some important principles include:
Involve people within and impacted by the system in the change.
Communicate as early and as openly as possible.
Understand where you are in the process and where you want to be – at all times.
Use measurable and attainable goals to drive your change.
Gather feedback, review, and implement revised action because successful change is not a one-time occurrence, but an on-going process.
