In this paper I explore the functions and benefits of establishing a team that has the capability to:
- Accurately assess the scale of change taking place within the organisation at any one time
- Implement all change initiatives successfully
- Build and support a network of Change Managers
- Create a culture where change is expected and welcomed
I have referred to this team as a Change Management Office, whilst recognising that it has many aliases including Portfolio Office, Strategic Planning Team, Business Transformation department and Change Management Centre of Excellence.
