Successful change projects are characterized by the use of the right methods at the right time. Therefore, Fraunhofer IPT developed a toolbox meeting following demands: little effort to conduct methods, comprehensiveness, consecutive build-up, flexible and dynamic approach concerning reflection and changing conditions plus consideration of soft factors. The theoretical background is based on communicational and motivational aspects as well as organizational phenomena like micro politics and corporate culture. The success of a change project must be assessable for management and all participants. To recommend the most appropriate methods for single projects, company specific conditions, the change-type and the prevailing corporate culture should be considered. Additionally, a study conducted by IPT shows significant correlations. The individual change-types influence the effect of individual culture characteristics, which may be supportive or inhibitory. The toolbox provides flexible methodological support and integrates corporate culture. The aim is to safeguard the quality of change-projects on different corporate cultures.
