Flexibility of Prosci Licenses
Licensing makes change management efforts repeatable and sustainable in your organization. And it offers greater flexibility when deploying change management on projects and across the entire organization. Here's how a Prosci license will help your organization meet objectives and fully leverage Prosci's offerings internally:
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.
Prosci's change management foundations integrate easily into existing organizational processes, including established project management, human resources and organizational development methods. Creating a unified approach to projects will enable you to streamline processes and drive business results.
Translation and terminology
A license enables you to translate Prosci's materials, so you can all speak the same language around change—both literally and figuratively—within your organization. Whether in English or another language, every organization uses unique terms to describe processes, projects and groups involved in change management. With a Prosci license, you can adapt materials to reflect the common terminology used throughout your organization or translate into other languages as needed.
Standardization for organizational deployment
Do you want to make "great change management" the expectation rather than the exception? You can make that a reality when you adopt the Prosci Methodology, or a modified or customized version, as your organizational standard. A license enables organization-wide access to change management resources and tools with significant cost savings compared to per-user deployment.
Support Your Organization's Unique Needs
Given your understanding of your organization's culture, values and business model, you know that one size does not fit all when it comes to successfully managing change. But you can support your organization's unique change management initiatives by licensing and leveraging Prosci's research, tools and training programs.
