KNORR-BREMSE: CHANGE & PM SUPPORT
From the conceptual design of a change management communication plan to the operational project management
Knorr-Bremse AG is rolling out a new product lifecycle management system across all its sites worldwide. For more than 5000 employees, this means changing processes and workflows that have been in place for over 20 years. Since the existing PLM system forms an integral part of the company’s everyday operations and due to the significant intervention into the workflows involved, it is being replaced by the new system gradually and in regular cycles. To prepare the employees for the impending changes and to familiarize them step by step with the new tool, large-scale change management measures must be centrally initiated and controlled from the Munich site.
Approach & Project Modules
Change Management Support
For the duration of the project, worldwide change management measures were designed, controlled, and executed. The main focus was on intensive communication with users, and ensuring acceptance and competencies with regard to the new system.
Implementing a Project Management Office
To control the project and relieve the burden on employees, Tiba set up a PMO and took over responsibility for all project management activities.
