As 2016 comes to an end, we shift our focus to 2017 and the new opportunities and challenges on the horizon. The New Year brings us new possibilities to grow, expand and extend our impact. So, I’d like to ask you – what’s next? For you? For your organization? For this discipline? And for us here at Prosci?
What’s Next for You?
As the discipline has blossomed, so has the need for expert practitioners – both practitioners inside of and those that support organizations. These expert practitioners have a command of the discipline, a command of the toolset and perspective on how it all fits together.
Are you looking for a way to differentiate yourself and continue your professional development in the New Year? Explore Prosci’s Advanced Certification Tracks - where we offer fully supported curriculums for those with aspirations to become expert practitioners, deployment leaders or instructors.
What’s Next for Your Organization?
Leading organizations are realizing that their ability to successfully change is a key source of competitive advantage and one of the most critical core competencies they can grow. Building change capability and organizational agility requires structure and intent.
In 2017, is your organization ready to embark on the journey of increasing its change muscle by embedding change practices and building individual change competencies? Explore the connection between organizational agility and enterprise change management, as well as a new organizational agility assessment, in this thought leadership library article.
