In the last post I shared some of the work I have been doing with the community management team behind the Organisational Change Practitioners group on Linkedin. One of the strategic principles is “We are in service to the profession”. One of the tactical ways we have been doing that is sharing dedicated blog posts on change management via the @ocpractitioner twitter account.

The content strategy on this is kind of simple. Most of the business world is unclear on what exactly change management is. There are many domains that overlap – communication, leadership, innovation for example.  So to that end we are sharing posts that are central to the practice of Organisational Change Management (OCM) to assist in providing clarity.

And I’ve got to say there’s not a great number of dedicated change management bloggers! So without further ado – here’s a list I have bookmarked at the moment who are my go to sources. I welcome more — if you know of some-one who is regularly blogging on OCM I would love to know and happy to update.

  1. Thanks Jennifer! You are indeed “in service to the profession”. Generous of you to share. I follow your blog with interest also. Just occurs to me that I should add it to my blog roll – off to do that now. Gail

    Thanks so much for including my blog! I’m glad you find it helpful in the Change Management space. I’ve recently added a page that includes Change Management resources – I’ll have to add some of these great blogs!

  3. Thanks for including me on the list, Jen – and thanks for compiling the list. Some of these change management bloggers are new to me and I’m looking forward to checking them out!

  4. Thanks for the blog inclusion Jennifer.
    It is nice to know hard work put into getting words in the right order is noticed.
    Change (and the “management” thereof) requires lots of words and lots of conversation!

  5. Great list! Some of these were on my own ‘go to’ list. New ones I look forward to exploring.

    The number 8 with a parenthesis turns into a smiley because automatic formatting is turned on. Just as an “TM” with a parenthesis on each side turns into the Trademark bug. Check for your auto-formatting, or in some cases it’s in auto-correct features on your computer. Hope this helps!

    Wonderful, valuable resources, thank you! Do you know of any that are still being updated? Most of those were last updated in 2012/13.
