Change management is the process of developing a planned approach to change in an organization. Typically the objective is to maximize the collective benefits for all people involved in the change and minimize the risk of failure of implementing the change.

It is the practice of administering changes with the help of tested methods and techniques in order to avoid new errors and minimize the impact of changes.Many technical disciplines (for example Information technology) have developed similar approaches to formally control the process of making changes to environments.

 Change management can be either 'reactive', in which case management is responding to changes in the macro environment (the source of the change is external), or proactive, in which case management is initiating the change in order to achieve a desired goal (the source of the change is internal). Change management can be conducted on a continuous basis, on a regular schedule (such as an annual review), or when deemed necessary on a program-by-program basis.

 Change management can be approached from a number of angles and applied to numerous organizational processes. It’s most common uses are in information technology management, strategic management, and process management. To be effective, change management should be multi-disciplinary, touching all aspects of the organization. However, at its core, implementing new procedures, technologies, and overcoming resistance to change are fundamentally human resource management issues.
