Both the Change Management and Project Management disciplines aim to bring change and increase the likelihood that projects deliver desired outcomes. Project management provides the structure and processes to ensure that changes are developed and delivered effectively from technical perspectives. On the other side, change management focuses on people to ensure that a change is embraced and adopted.

The article points out that in order to create value on a given project and develop a unified approach to implement the change, these two disciplines have to be integrated. However, for the integration to happen the organization has to meet certain pre-requisites:
