The CML 5Es is a business change methodology designed to simplify the entire change implementation process. This model helps to drive delivery and enable successful results. The CML 5Es is an acronym for the five phases that a Change professional follows for people to transition and experience change: Explore, Enable, Engage, Emerge, Embed
