Change Management Survey

#1
Dear ARRSE Member,

I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Technology at the University of Wolverhampton specialising in Programme and Project Management. As part of my continued professional development I am also researching Change Management as part of a MSc. in Strategic IT Management.

The paper title is: An Analysis of Change Management – A Project Management Function or Separate Discipline?

The academic question is: Is Change Management an “essential integrated element” of Project Management or a “bolt-on discipline” to be used on an ad hoc basis?

This academic question will answer whether companies are actively using CM as an integrated or separate discipline within the project management environment and is CM a Project Managers required skill or should this function be a separate job role.

The findings may indicate a necessity to have complementary skills and understanding of CM in project management training and provide secondary and empirical evidence to answer the academic question.

Please the following link to a questionnaire for publication to members. This has been through ethical approval. Survey

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks for your time and effort.

Genuine question, Is "project management" the same as "programme management" the term used in your survey?

Questions 6-8 do you want organisation wide figure for people engaged in programme management or within my department?

Questions 10-13 replicated, as are 14 -17.

"19 Is Senior Management committed to championing Change ?
need to include a response along the lines of
"it depends upon the change advicated"

Point to you.

Complimentary/complementary confusion

The words complimentary and complementary are very easy to confuse. One means 'To praise' or 'Offered freely,' the other means 'To complete.' Here are some usage examples you won't find in the dictionary...
Complementary colour - One of a particular pair of colours whose combination produces white light.
Complimentary colour - 'Why, Green, you are looking stunning today!' 'Oh do be quiet, Purple, you're making me blush.'
Complementary medicine - a treatment that is designed to work in conjunction with your body's own resources.
Complimentary medicine - the free samples given out by drug pushers to increase their market.
'My compliments to the chef.' - Please pass on my congtratulations to the person who created this fine meal.
'My complements to the chef.' - Whoever made this meal needs my help.
A compliments slip - small piece of paper to show gratitude to a client for their business.
A complements slip - something you accidentally blurt out that enables your opponent to complete the quiz before you.
Complimenting a woman - noticing she has had her hair done and saying how nice she looks.
Complementing a woman - Well, I've never heard it called that before.
Complementary software - Additional software that completes or enhances an existing product.
Complimentary software - Thank you for installing AOL.

Change Management, that's the thing where I have to justify something I want to do to someone who doesn't do my job or understand my taskings.

There are major differences between Programme and project; mainly that a programe is a collection of projects producing an overal strategic change. Programmes produce outcomes whereas projects produce outputs.

An organisation wide figure of people engaged in the activities would be good; if known.

The questions 6 -17 are specifically aimed at Programme Management, Project Management and Change Management. The questions are the same but on different topics.

There is a free text option on the final question for any comments.

There have been some excellent posts and I appreciate all of your assistance.

Cheers all.

Regards,

Adrian
