1131 - Change Management It's Not Just for Updates and Conversions
Change Management provides a framework for the people, processes and technology that are part of large scale projects such as updates and conversions as well as day to day operational needs such as adding a new charge procedure. Its guiding principles are used to support and understand the defined changes and their effect on an organization.
Change Management is a defined, perpetual process supported by everyone in the organization. It is held up as the â€œway we do businessâ€ and the related processes are aimed at helping all involved understand, commit to and embrace the changes.
