In order for anything to be successful it must start with a foundation. Before you can build a house you must have a foundation, before you become a business analyst you must build a foundation, before you can learn martial arts you must build a foundation and before you make changes you must have a foundation for a change management process.

The one thing that is constant is change. The reason projects exists is because something needs to change.
