For a successful transformation certain criteria have to be met for the transition of change to the new technology. Organizations that want successful transition have to give management the ability to make recommendations to ensure the success of implementation, which are the necessity for change, the preparation of non-technological staff, and the effect the changes will have throughout the organization. When implementing new technology managers have to make recommendation on changes that will be beneficial for the organization. The need for new technology has to be assessed and planned to understand the need of the departments in which the changes will affect. Whether the technology will be innovative or used to streamline the work process managers have to look at the overall picture and the effect on each department.
Organizational Change Organizations today are going through constant change brought about by competition, economics, business innovation and a realization that remaining stagnant may mean organizational death. As the business environment increases in complexity and changes rapidly, organization and management consequently experiences significant transformation to cope with these changes. On a micro level (company level), these changes would include the transformation of the internal corporate culture as well as enhancements in the management of human resources in response to increasing workplace diversity and the evolving needs of the workforce. Therefore, the ability to change is an important part of the organization's business environment while the ability to help it adapt to change is equally a critical business challenge for the leadership. Change is imperative Organizations can't escape change.

Change management is "the focus of the change project (or initiative), whether it be to bring about alterations at the individual, group…or organizational level"(Henderson and McAdam, 1998, p.1). The concept behind change and change management is that these changes or "alterations’ refer to proactive business improvements"(Henderson and McAdam, 1998, p.1). Unfortunately, "the underlying assumption that all change is good"(Ojala, 1997, p.1) is incorrect; therefore, companies, organizations, and institutions must understand the "forces that drive change," how their employees will react to change, and the "underlying principles of change, and use them to develop a comprehensive change management framework" that will ensure a successful change project (Hirschfield, 1998, p. 1).
