Whether you’re new to change management or have been doing change management for decades, it’s likely you’ve not heard of all the change models that are in use.  This library contains some of the most frequently used change models in the industry complete with summaries and resources.  If you want a quick interview, check out Pick Any Change Model to see how you might pick a model that will work for you and your organization.

Often we find that successful projects blend two or more models to get the best efficacy so even if you’re committed to a particular change model you may find that other models can be useful.
