The annual Change Management conference by the Association of Change Management Professionals is coming up on March 25 - 28 in Las Vegas, NV, and Prosci is thrilled to be a sponsoring partner.
As we prepared for the release of our tenth Best Practices in Change Management report over twenty years of research, I couldn't help but notice how many things have changed in twenty years. Let’s take a moment to reflect:
Change management as a discipline is almost unrecognizable when it comes to new opportunities for change professionals. The industry has taken large strides to become a formal discipline within the last decade. Prosci alone has certified over 45,000 change practitioners in the Prosci Change Management Certification Program. In the 2016 edition of Best Practices in Change Management, participants pointed to an increasing number of their organizations creating permanent positions for change management professionals.
Building role-based individual change competencies is an essential aspect of growing an enterprise change capability. Roles at the enterprise level are responsible for bringing a change management capability to life. But what specific roles—and what enhanced skillsets within these roles—do you need to build an enterprise change management capability?
Where were you in 2004? The answers among us will be wide reaching but perhaps we all had one thing in common: we were experiencing some sort of change (professional or personal) or we were leading others through change.
If you are a change practitioner, chances are you've had several questions about how to begin applying or customizing change management at your organization. There are several resources to help you answer these questions. Here on the Prosci blog is a great place, as is the Prosci Change Management Library. But now Prosci-Certified Change Practitioners can get more specialized support to realize better results: 12 months of live, on-demand support with a dedicated change management advisor. Our aim is to ensure that every client and every practitioner has the tools and support they need to succeed.
Imagine that you, an experienced change management practitioner, are assigned a new change initiative to manage. You attend your first meeting with the project team ready to plan out the course of the project from now through go-live and beyond. However, you find out that they have only planned out the first two weeks of work! More shockingly, the project plan calls for only addressing work in these two week ‘sprint’ cycles. What do you do?
How can you obtain the skills to keep up with bigger, faster and more complex change? What is the process for achieving a Prosci Advanced Certification so you can propel your career and organization forward? Gain answers to these questions and more with our new infographic:
