In today's digital world, change is the only constant. Companies and leaders must be ready to navigate through transformations and embrace opportunities. We help you realize your ambitions with technology driven organizational change management and digital transformations.
At KPMG, we understand that organizations are in a continuous state of evolution. Adapting to market trends, seizing opportunities, and tackling challenges are imperative.
To create lasting value, it’s not so much the organization itself that needs to change, but the underlying technology and ways of working. This is where effective change management becomes pivotal.
What is Change Management
Change management is the process through which we empower people to achieve desired results and outcomes during times of change. By integrating change as a strategic capability, we cultivate agility and build a solid foundation for success.
With our tailored and proven change methodology, powered by Prosci, KPMG ensures technology-driven transformations that deliver value and user-centric experiences. Our structured, data-driven approach empowers organizations, leaders, and employees alike to manage change proactively and effectively from project inception to completion, ensuring long-lasting and sustainable results.
Why Change Management is important
Projects which do not apply change management often fail to deliver expected and effective results. It is also likely that the transformation timeline will extend, and costs increase. Often, the limited customization of technology solutions also results in wasted investment, adding to an unsatisfying end result with little impact.
Projects that integrate change management are:
- expected to meet project objectives.
- expected to stay on schedule.
- expected to meet budget requirements.
- expected to increase ROI (People understand the transformation of ways of working).

Our approach to Change Management
Empowering successful business transformation
Change management requires a holistic, data-driven, proactive and structured approach. For transformation projects to be successful, Management and all stakeholders need to be prepared and equipped to adopt new technologies and change the way of working.
Inadequate or insufficient implementation thereof will likely not deliver the desired outcomes. Our change management program, based on the Prosci methodology and ADKAR model, guides enterprises, leaders, and employees through the five key phases of change.
These stages ensure that leadership and employees are clear on change management, aware of the benefits and ready to implement change.
While the stages of the change model may not always follow a linear path in client projects, addressing each stage is essential for successful change.
