Offerings

Certification Program (3 days)

This program is designed for people responsible for managing change or building the change management competency within their organization. Upon completion, participants are certified in Prosci’s change management methodology and equipped to lead their organizations through all types of change.

Coaching Program (1 day)

According to Prosci research studies with more than 3,400 participants: managers and supervisors play one of the most critical roles in leading employees through change. This program focuses on the power of individual coaching, how to avoid common manager mistakes and techniques for managing resistance. It provides the tools and skills necessary for assessing teams and creating actions plans to help them through change.

Sponsor Program (4- 6 hours)

Active and visible sponsorship is the number one contributor to overall project success. This program will help executives and senior leaders embrace their role as sponsors of change initiatives. They will discover that “visible and active sponsorship” is more than simply authorizing resources and providing funding. This program provides the tools and skills necessary for effectively leading change and positioning their projects for success.

Orientation Program (1 day)

Successful change relies on the acceptance and engagement of your employees, one individual at a time. When employees are involved, disruption to the business and resistance to change efforts are minimized. This orientation is based on the Employee’s Survival Guide to Change and the Prosci ADKAR model. It equips employees to play an active role in making change work.

Delivering Project Results (4-6 hours)

Designed for a project team or a group of project managers and leaders, this workshop provides project teams with awareness of how change management can help them meet a project’s intended outcomes. The workshop is designed to guide participants through a common language and framework for change management using terms they know: intent, objectives, scope, work streams, milestones, deliverables and timelines.

The Dynamic Duo of Project Success: Project Management + Organizational Change Management
The Dynamic Duo of Project Success: Project Management + Organizational Change Management
Have you ever seen a project run over budget? Slip schedules? Fail to deliver the expected benefits?

The reason is often much more basic - the people who were going to be impacted the most were forgotten, weren’t involved in the solution design, weren’t adequately informed of the project change or impacts, or weren’t prepared to work the new way.

The solution? Project management (PM) + Organizational Change Management (OCM)

The PM and OCM functions are two sides of the same coin. One side delivers the solution. The other side ensures its use. Consequently, these functions are both important to realize the return on investment of the deployed product.

Blockchain, IoT…or Your People? – What is the Next Big Thing in Business Technology?
All too often the focus of technology initiatives and implementation projects is on the technology. But study after study shows it is the human factor that drives the success of these initiatives. Technology is only a TOOL to help people do their work and processes better.
Why Change Management?
Why Change Management?
When I ask clients what percent of their change initiatives’ desired outcomes are based on people changing their behavior, more often than not, their automatic answer is 100%.  While that may not be entirely accurate, achieving business outcomes is largely based on people doing something differently. Whether it’s using new software, stepping into a new role or simplifying a process, there are expected organizational benefits of the change.  When I ask the same clients about the level of resources they are dedicating to supporting their employees doing things differently, unfortunately more often than not, their automatic answer is little to none.  So why the disconnect?
