An IT project in the domain of Manufacturing Operations is never easy. It interferes in the sensitive balance on the shopfloor where people, machines and material work together under the pressures of volume and value. One aspect that is easily under-estimated is the business change that comes with such a project.

The IT project team prioritizes its attention for the IT-related subjects like configurations and interfaces, and organization change is not its primary focus. The project works to get the system delivered, accepted and completed. Organization change may be needed but is not seen as a project deliverable.

The receiving organization is busy with running operations, the day-to-day work. It may be aware of the project coming, but it does not see the consequences in detail, or the measures that need to be taken to prepare for the new solution.

MOMi can help close that gap. Understanding the impact of the requirements in scope, identifying and working on the actions derived from that impact, and keep an eye on individual and group change.  Enabling you to prepare for the new solution and identify targets for three months post go-live as a start to move to realization of the business objectives.


Support for business change management is organized in parallel to the IT deployment project sprints and lives on a limited time after go-live.

Five stages can be identified:

  1. Assess the solution and impact.
  2. Detail the business requirements.
  3. Identify the change actions during project and the post go-live targets.
  4. Execute identified actions.
  5. Support and sustain the result.


The benefit of supporting change management is that the impact of the solution and necessary measures become clear in the early stages of the project. It enables you to anticipate and prepare for it.

Dedicated attention to actions and follow up, either to the IT project or to the business organization.

Reduced “surprises” and faster ramp-up to business benefits after go-live.
