Change Leadership AND Change Management: 2 Parts of the Same Whole

Thank you for the video of this week explaining the differences between Change Leadership (CL) and Change Management (CM) in Kotter's view.
I humbly suggest that they are mutually inclusive:
  • Without CL as a precursor, the need for CM is questionable.
  • Without CM, CL becomes nothing more than a think-tank.
I suggest they need to be considered as mutually supplementary and discussed as one entity.
⇒ Do you agree?

Change Leadership and Change Management

I agree that they are 2 parts. However, they are not the same. In short:
- Change management is all about how to manage the change process from planning to implementation.
- Change leadership is the people at an organisation tasked with leading the change process. Everything has been made ready as far as planning is concerned and someone is then asked to lead the change process.
Editor: Please note that your definitions of the 2 terms are different from the ones Kotter mentions in their video:
- CHANGE MANAGEMENT is defined as a set of processes and methods that are designed to make sure that when you try to realize a (relatively small) change:
1. The stakeholders buy into the change.
2. The process stays under control.
3. The project keeps on budget.
- CHANGE LEADERSHIP on the other hand is emergent and empowers speculated action, and is driven by good, but yet unproven ideas. It aims at realizing a (relatively large) change by going faster and being smarter by:
1. Articulating a strategic vision of the future.
2. Mobilizing necessary resources.
3. Putting an engine on the whole change process.
