Managing Business Change – A Holistic Approach

Managing business change is complex - from the initial stages, when the need for change is recognized, through design, implementation and delivery of benefits.  Successful business change must overcome many roadblocks and, as we all know, is not easy to accomplish.  Organizations often find it hard to get the right balance of hard and soft elements, for example by delivering both the process and the cultural changes.

Our mission, here at Managing Business Change, is to help organizations succeed in managing those changes that improve their capability to achieve their strategic goals.

Sharm Manwani and Barry Shore bring a diverse background from both sides of the Atlantic to help you develop this map.  Sharm Manwani has been the national and regional CIO of major US and European headquartered organizations. He is on the faculty of Henley Business School, and is the author of many papers and a recent book on IT Enabled Business Change. Barry Shore has worked full-time for such companies as Boeing, General Electric and Hewlett Packard. He has taught and consulted throughout the world, and has published over 150 articles including four books, two of which were published by McGraw-Hill.

The material on this site supports a holistic approach to business change. We introduce key frameworks and give you the opportunity to test your organization. We believe that learning can be drawn from both change failures and change successes. We provide related sources such as publications and newsletters.

You may find this material to be relevant in the context of your planned change. If so, we offer a range of services including workshops, keynote presentations and consulting. We always begin by establishing partnership goals with the sponsor and manager of the change.

Together, we bring an independent voice to your team process, one that is grounded both in sound theory and deep practical experience.
