Directing Change Management at the University of Minnesota

Published Date



University of Minnesota




The University of Minnesota has engaged in many change efforts over the years, on scales that ranged from small and focused, to large and system-wide. The latest example is the transformational strategic positioning process to become one of the top three public research universities in the world. Since change efforts are comprised of hundreds of transitions for individuals, units, colleges, and the institution, they can succeed or fail based on a number of factors. The purpose of this project is to investigate how to manage transitions in the midst of large scale organizational transformation in order to support the achievement of the University's aspirational goals.
