Licensing is a solution for making change management efforts repeatable and sustainable in your organization. A Prosci license offers your organization greater flexibility and concreteness when deploying change management on projects and across the entire organization. There are many ways a license will help your organization meet objectives and fully leverage Prosci's offerings internally:
Customization - You can modify Prosci's methodology, models, tools, and training programs to better suit the needs of your organization or use them as the foundation for creating fully customized tools and processes. Customization can range from incorporating your company's branding into training materials all the way to tailoring any one of Prosci's training programs to address your organization's unique needs.
Integration - You can integrate Prosci's change management foundations into existing organizational processes, including established project management, human resources, and OD methods. Create a unified approach to projects to streamline processes and drive business results.
Translation & Terminology - You can translate Prosci's materials into the right language for your organization. Prosci licenses offer you flexibility in "speaking the same language" - literally and figuratively - within your organization. Whether in English or another language, it still holds true that every organization uses unique terms to describe processes, projects, and groups involved in change management. With a Prosci license, you can adapt the materials to reflect the common terminology used throughout your organization or translate into other languages.
Standardization for Organizational Deployment - You can adopt the Prosci methodology, or a modified or customized version, as the organizational standard and the foundation for making great change management the expectation rather than the exception. A license enables organization-wide access to change management resources and tools with significant cost savings compared to per-user deployment.
Given the knowledge you have of your organization's culture, values and business model, you know that one size does not fit all when it comes to change management.
