About this SIG

Welcome to the Enabling Change SIG community.

The SIG was established in January 2014 to improve the change capability of organisations, teams and individuals.

The Enabling Change SIG is a highly collaborative SIG, supporting and enabling the change agenda across other SIGs, reaching out to SIG and APM members through the branches, and participating in change related discussions across the APM. 

We have a balanced focus on internal and external activities, establishing and developing partnerships with other relevant organisations and groups in order to ensure that we are at the forefront of thought leadership on change-specific topics.

Our mission

The Enabling Change SIG’s mission is to 'improve the change capability of organisations, teams and individuals'.

How we work

The Enabling Change SIG aims to develop and sustain individual practitioner, team and organisational change capability by facilitating access to and exploration of change methods, standards, case studies and good practices.

We have a growing collection of reference material on our website, and have produced an introductory guide.

We foster “Change Practitioner Groups”: communities of senior change practitioners in public and private sectors, academics and authors who wish to share their knowledge and experience, explore and address challenges and opportunities for enhancing the change capability of their organisations, teams and individuals.

We also conduct innovative research to support our work and generally advance the body of knowledge relating to enabling change.
