An excellent change manager is an enabler. This role can tend to be tied down by process in order to mitigate as many risks as possible. Ultimately, however, it is in the business best interest to enable changes to occur in a timely manner. An excellent change manager finds a healthy balance between a flexible and agile change system and a low risk environment.

Attraction to the Position

Staff Retention Strategies for Employers

[Suggest Edit]

Change Management can be perceived as a hindrance to engineers and other implementers rather than a positive tool to manage change. This can create conflict for the practitioner in the change management role. Employers should support and promote the change process where possible to ensure that all staff have a common understanding of expectations.
