Organizational Change Management

Randy Somermeyer

Eighty to ninety percent of all projects fail to meet their objectives.  Ninety percent of those are due to neglecting the human element.   These are staggering numbers!  Why are so many ERP, or other system related projects doomed to fail after implementation?  Why do many internal projects never produce any sustainable results other than the distribution of the project shirts or coffee cups?  How do you identify areas of project resistance and risk associated to the sponsors and staff?
