Implementing Change Management @PSPC
We want to ensure change management is done effectively on all transformational projects across the organization by instituting business discipline by which we control and direct our change management efforts.

- Build internal change management competency
- Adopt a consistent approach to change management
- Deputy Minister Strategic Planning Retreat (September 2015) decision:
- Take a holistic view of transformation portfolios by applying a structured, systematic change management approach;
- Obtain change management certification for those with transformation and change management accountabilities.
What We Did
