Success Story: Oshkosh Equips Managers and PMO with Change Management

Oshkosh Corporation is a global manufacturing company that designs and builds the world’s toughest specialty trucks, truck bodies and access equipment. A Fortune 500 company with manufacturing operations on four continents, its products are recognized around the world for quality, durability and innovation.

After a few major initiatives encountered program restarts, there was a realization that in order for change to flourish, people must be engaged in change along the way, not just at the end. This recognition paved the way for a formalized change management approach. Since 2013, dedicated resources have taken the application of change management from one-project-at-a-time to integrating change management practices within existing methodologies (IT PMO, Lean/Six Sigma) and teaching team members how to lead and engage in change throughout Oshkosh Corporation.
