CHAMPS2 - Change Management Methodology
Business change is increasingly central to organisational sustainability and critical to realising effectiveness and efficiency.
The CHAMPS2 method was developed by Birmingham City Council and Service Birmingham to manage the change of systems, organisation structure, processes and working styles as part of an ambitious plan to transform services which began in 2006.
The organisation is now better placed to deal with change in the future and has been recognised as a best practice leader in business change.
The council’s ten year business transformation programme is being successfully delivered and is on track to deliver 95% of expected benefits.
Helping others to succeed
