July ASQ Member Gift: Change Management

Changes usually don’t fail because there’s something inherently flawed about the change itself, they usually fail for human reasons. In most cases the promoters of the change did not attend to the healthy, real, and predictable reactions of normal people to a disturbance of their routines.

In this new ASQ Member Gift, they’ve gathered lots of great resources for you from their repository of knowledge, from introductions to the basic elements of change management to detailed case studies, to full e-books and expert videos on how to successfully maneuver the sometimes treacherous waters of change toward desired ends.

Enjoy this gift of resources and save it for your next transition or implementation—because if you’re not going through a change right now, it’s coming.
