MAnaging System Change in Aviation

The main objective of MASCA (MAnaging System Change in Aviation) is to develop and deliver a structure to manage the acquisition and retention of skills and knowledge concerning organizational processes for managing change in the ?whole air transport system?. The Project takes an action research approach with a primary focus on the transfer of change management capability into the organizations that are responsible for and involved in change. Thus MASCA is organized around two complementary objectives:

  • The development of an Integrated Change Management System (CMS).
  • The deployment and evaluation of the CMS in selected change management initiatives, both simulated and actual.
The MASCA consortium covers the right range and balance of partners to address the ?whole air transport system? ? airlines (AirDolomiti, and SAS) include flight, maintenance and ground operations, airports (Saga), airport authorities (Swedavia), OEM (Thales Avionics) a world leader in aircraft technologies, universities (Trinity College Dublin, KTH), research organisation (NLR), and a SME (KITE Solutions) with a strong profile in technology and human factors services to aviation. The eight partners represent five European countries.
