These are the type changes which the manager and his team have to manage which will require them to do something more than the routine problem solving.

It becomes a set of living documents, which will support the process to a successful completion. The potential for improving commitment and support from the organization is enhanced. Most of all, the manager can stop panicking and start managing the change with confidence.
