According to pioneering business strategist and innovator Dr. John Kotter, there are essentially eight change management steps that put organizations on track to reap the rewards – or in some cases, mitigate the adverse impact – of change, whether triggered internally or externally: establish a sense of urgency; create the guiding coalition; develop a change vision; communicate the vision; empower broad-based action; generate short-term wins; never let up; and incorporate changes into the culture.
And while all of these steps are vital, they can only happen when organization’s can rely on superior communication, transparency and teamwork -- and making that happen is what Clarizen was created to do.

- Enable inspired teamwork by bringing together workgroups on a centralized platform and a shared culture – and keep them from working on their “disconnected islands of activities” using their own systems, tools, processes and protocols
