The DAMA Portland Chapter is dedicated to delivering thought provoking presentations that will make you more successful in your job. In June we take an exciting step away from the hard science topics to explore how to be more effective.

How many times have you delivered solutions that were never adopted or fell short in acceptance? If you’ve been around IT and projects long enough, you will know this truth - that success depends on the adoption of new systems, applications etc. by people. The skills that enable delivery are not the same skills that promote acceptance and use. While project management tends to focus on delivery of something, Transition Management (TM) focuses on the people part of solutions. At places like Nike, transition management is taken very seriously and all major projects have a Transition Manager assigned:

  • Transition Management is a structured approach, and set of tools, to transition individuals, teams, and organizations from a current start to a desired future state

  • A leadership competency for enabling change within organization

  • A strategic capability designed to increase change capacity and responsiveness

No matter the project or change size, Transition Management should be always a consideration. Ignore TM at your own risk.

Transition management is more than just a learning plan. Done correctly, TM is a whole lot more. Nike's Transition Methodology is an evolution of the Bridge's Change Management Model.
