Immediate Organizational Benefits
of Prosci Change Management Training
Does your manager know that effective change management helps you save money and time, and increase return on investment (ROI) on projects? When budgets are tight and revenue dips, it’s more important than ever to achieve the higher levels of adoption and project success that change management delivers.
Here’s why attending Prosci’s Change Management Certification Program now will help your organization:
1. Complex, organizational change isn’t slowing down.
Prosci research shows that ERP and CRM systems implementations, electronic health record systems
implementations, IT software and hardware upgrades, and global digital transformations are still happening.
The same goes for process improvements, culture changes, reorganizations, mergers, office relocations,
and other organizational changes.
2. Project failures are costly.
Rework, budget overruns, and missed deadlines come with a cost for your organization. When resources and
funding are tight, getting changes right the first time matters even more. Our research shows that projects with
effective change management are 7X more likely to meet or achieve project objectives.
3. Structured approach = success.
Among our research participants who applied a particular methodology, 59% achieved good or excellent levels of change management effectiveness, while only 26% achieved the same success with unstructured approaches.
4. Hands-on project experience means you can apply skills immediately.
During the program, you work on a real project from your organization with expert guidance. After three days, you emerge with a strategy for your unique change and solid progress on tactical plans to jumpstart your success.
5. Digital tools will guide your ongoing practice.
Prosci’s digital tools, including Proxima, guide you through the change management process and support your change management work with data and insights to achieve more successful change.
6. Change management increases people-dependent ROI.
If your project’s success depends on people adopting and using it, change management will help you achieve your expected ROI. In fact, the more dependent a project’s benefits are on adoption and usage, the larger the
contribution that effective change management makes.
