“All those changes we’ve experienced over the last 14+ months, most of those have been quick changes with no prep. Change management means we need some prep.”

“If you go through the questions process it can help you know if that change is going to ripple into a bigger change.”

“It’s because “what” impacts “when” something can happen.”
