Change management is the practice of transforming the organization from the current state to a new state to achieve expected benefits such as improvement in performance. This structured approach includes the application of knowledge, skills, methodologies, processes and tools. The need for change has various causes including the dissatisfaction with the current situation or the need to adapt a new challenge. Change starts with a vision, implemented using a strategy, and has an impact on the organization and the people within it.

You need a set of tools that will help you along the way, and there is a wide range of change management tools.
