First and foremost in Organizational Change Management a successful project is to develop a plan to produce the desired results and remain within budget. Kotter had the right idea about change when he listed his eight elements needed for successful change (Phelan, 2005).

All of these are part of the change that are needed to become a better manager of organizational change. Kotter also had great insight into why failure might occur with change. He stated that complacency, failure to build coalitions, unclear and poorly communicated vision, road blocks, poor planning, and declaring victory too soon, and loose anchoring to organizational or personal vision were reasons why change does not succeed. All of these can be applied to organizational change management.
