Eight common misperceptions of management of change

Download Now


Whenever I mention management of change to plant personnel, I generally get one of several predictable responses. The knowledgeable ones will cite the regulation OSHA 1910.119(a)(2) and tell me that they aren't a "covered process" so that it does not apply to them — generally with a great sigh of relief. Another frequent response is: "We have a drawing management procedure, but we are so far behind it would take years and resources we don't have to catch up." Others still will tell me that they have a perfectly fine procedure for their managers to approve small projects and alterations. And a few will sheepishly think about the pennies and nickels filling up their car's ash tray.
