"I am happy to recommend this work. I believe in the principles presented in it and identify with its context. Due to the lack of knowledge on the subject in the market, it is a topic that must be made known. The book should be in the library of all project and change managers."— Paul Dinsmore, PMI Fellow "Every manager should integrate HCMBOK® practices into their project management methodology in order to fully develop their work. This book addresses a simple and practical way that the critical component in organizational change management can be applied to projects of all kinds: the human factor."— Bruno Machado, Director, Project Management Office, Grupo Anima Educação "We live in a time of change, speed, and an avalanche of information.

Knowing a method that provides a structured way to take care of the human aspect is a key factor in the success of any project! HCMBOK® offers a simple and practical approach to managing change, which can be easily incorporated into the project management routine, providing amazing results."— Pedro Augusto Cardoso da Silva, Engineering Director, METRÔRIO This reference starts by presenting the concept of change management, its players, strategies, and applicable models.
