In today’s fast moving environment where innovation in technology, globalisation, massive competition and new demands of the market changes continuously it is very important that companies go through constant changes to adapt to the world’s needs in order to be competitive in their respective field. In the process of pursuing its own goals, companies need to pay attention to the environment as well as going through continuous transformation and readjustment. By misunderstanding the goals set or deviating from the goals a company can lose its identity which can eventually lead to the overall failure of the company [1]

The theory of change management makes sure that companies maintain clear sight of the goals set and go through the change process as smoothly as possible. In other words, a structured approach for ensuring that changes are thoroughly and smoothly implemented, and that the lasting benefits of change are achieved. The focus is on the wider impacts of change, particularly on people and how they, as individuals and teams, move from the current situation to the new one [2]

Program management is a key method in organisational change. It allows change managers to have an overview of the wide range of projects and activities that should be executed in order for the company to achieve the changes intended. The most important aspects of the program management is to provide overview for change managers, as well as making sure projects are executed properly, making sure the alignment of projects and assessing the risks involved.
