Once you’ve hired a new change management practitioner or team member, how do you ensure they have the knowledge and ability they need to successfully facilitate change?

Checklist for Your Change Management Approach

How do you know if your change management approach is set up to succeed? Using the Prosci change management methodology as a foundation, we’ve created an easy-to-use Checklist for Your Change Management Approach you can use on your initiatives and changes.

The Costs & Risks of Poorly Managed Change

When the people side of change is ignored or poorly managed, the project and the organization take on additional costs and risks.

Guide Your Change Management Journey with This Sample Company

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.

If we think of the Practitioner eToolkit as a virtual change management tool bag, we can imagine opening it to see what it contains.
