This paper suggests a model on how we will be able to ldquocreate substance out of seeming chaosrdquo in our quest to manage change in technology and engineering effectively? The authors introduce an integrated management model as a process which has withstood the test of practical application over the last decade, especially in an environment of equivocal change. The suggested methodology/model lends itself to understand and judiciously manipulate the dynamics of the high tech global business environment for sustained competitive advantage in a framework of an environment fraught with constant change. The management model recognizes and enables managers to address the many issues confronting them daily by giving a new strategic perspective with the help of sub-models. These sub-models form the anchors of Change Management whereby the fluid and complex situation can be managed reasonably, effectively, sustainably and hopefully, wisely, too. Limited results are provided for two case studies in an action research setting. It is the contention of this paper that a mature, analytical and intuitive management approach based on the integrated management model introduced will lead to an effective change management and management of change process in an environment of pervasive, enigmatic and paradigmatic change, when applied with in-sight, whole-sight and consistency.
