Challenging the change management paradigm

A frequently cited figure is that 70% of all projects fail, presumably often due to inadequate change management. With the vast amount of well-established literature on change management, we are eager to investigate why this is the case.
We want to prove or reject some of the classic claims that exist in change management as well as our own beliefs by applying a well-proven, data-driven research methodology. This is why University of Oxford and Implement Consulting Group have joined forces to conduct a comprehensive research project on change management in IT projects.
To accomplish this, we need project managers and owners willing to use approx. 1 hour on participating in an interview and following sending background data on the specific project.

Building knowledge to improve the impact of IT projects

Oxford2 tonetUniversity of Oxford and Implement Consulting Group have set out to put data behind what creates successful IT projects focusing on the change management effort. We need ambitious organisations to join the project.

Challenging the change management paradigm

A frequently cited figure is that 70% of all projects fail, presumably often due to inadequate change management. With the vast amount of well-established literature on change management, we are eager to investigate why this is the case.

We want to prove or reject some of the classic claims that exist in change management as well as our own beliefs by applying a well-proven, data-driven research methodology. This is why University of Oxford and Implement Consulting Group have joined forces to conduct a comprehensive research project on change management in IT projects.

Building knowledge to improve project outcome

Based on the data, we will investigate and identify the key change manage­ment drivers of ensuring success­ful IT projects. You will gain insight into groundbreaking research, learn about change management and be challenged on your everyday practice – all to improve the impact of your projects. You will get:

  • A benchmark report of your data to gain insights and improve success ratings for IT projects in your organisation.
  • Exclusive access to white papers delivering the data and conclusions as well as recommendations and practical advice.
  • The opportunity to participate in our change management conference where you can network and share knowledge with peers.

A small effort with a big impact

The standard participation process requires 2-3 hours of your time. Note that all data will be delivered directly to University of Oxford and will be handled confidentially within the re­search team. Your contribution will be:

  1. Participating in an interview on change management

We will conduct an interview that lasts approx. 1 hour focusing on the change management effort in the project.

  1. Delivering background data for the specific project

We need project-specific data concerning estimated and actual timelines, budget, workload and benefits. The data can be delivered in any format available to you and will be handled confidentially by University of Oxford.

To do this, we need your contribution. We are therefore looking for projects that meet the following three criteria:

  • The project must have been finished for at least three months.
  • The project must include an IT component, i.e. implementation or upgrading of an IT system.
  • The project must have brought changes for end users, i.e. new processes, new roles, new system or similar.
