A Better Way to Talk About the ROI of Change Management

I was recently discussing the ROI of change management with a colleague who expressed frustration with incessantly being challenged for the ROI of managing the people side of change.

How to Position Change Management

Since 2007, the top change management trend identified by participants in the Prosci Best Practices in Change Management report has been greater awareness or recognition of the need for change management.

6 References to Make the Case for Change Management

Here at Prosci, customers and consultants often ask for references or articles to help them make the case for change management based on research data and studies by various organizations. Here are some key references that should be at your finger tips:

The Correlation Between Change Management and Project Success

In Prosci's benchmarking studies, a top trend frequently identified by study participants is a greater recognition of the need for and value of change management.
