Organizational Change Management Checklist - VRM Transition Communication Plan

  1. 1.

The following OCM checklists align to this Transition Communication Plan and the described three (3) phases for VRM transition: • Pre-Transition (Begins at least 90 days before the Transition phase) • Transition (Begins 90 days before the actual date the VRM PMO effectively transitions to EA&I) • Post-Transition (Begins 90 days after the actual date the VRM PMO effectively transitioned to E&AI) These checklists also reference the VRM Organizational Change Management Strategy and Plan (Version 1.0) dated July 15, 2011.
