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.
Over the years, project leaders recognized that Oshkosh was good at building solutions to address business opportunities but could improve its approach to end-user adoption. 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.
