Prosci's methodology is the collective lessons learned by thousands of change practitioners and project leaders across the globe. It focuses on managing change effectively and building change competent organizations.  Over the 20-year period of conducting comprehensive research studies, including the recently launched 10th study, we have asked participants about the greatest contributors to success.  We actively track and report on the top contributors and numerous other topics, examining trends and key themes captured as data, graphs, and charts in a comprehensive research summary.

What would it look like, however, if we blended these findings into a fictional company with a setting, plot, characters, and key theme – the elements of a story?  And, what if the key theme was building a change competent organization?  That is exactly what we have done with the creation of Finesta Financial.
