What is the Prosci® methodology?
The Prosci® Change Management methodology is a systematic and holistic approach that guides organizations to realize the benefits of their change initiatives. It also aims at building internal, organizational capabilities to deal swiftly and efficiently with the ever-increasing number of changes. The Change Management Prosci® methodology is built around two fundamental models: one developed to deal with change at a personal level and the other to deal with change at an organizational level.
The model for personal change is based on ADKAR®, an acronym that stands for Awareness, Desire, Knowledge, Ability and Reinforcement.
The model for organizational change is realized through the Three Phase Model with defined steps and tools for every phase:
- Preparing for Change
- Managing Change
- Reinforcing Change
The models are based on Prosci® research on best practices from about 3,000 organizations worldwide. Prosci® has developed tools, templates, and checklists, to help develop a Change Management strategy and plans and to evaluate progress. That’s what makes Prosci® the first choice of the 80% of Fortune 100 companies and the reason why we chose this methodology.
