Partners in Change: Building Global Organizational Capability
Written by Mike Davis
Prosci’s global leadership in change management has steadily grown in recent years. In 2009, we formalized our Prosci Global Partner Network, beginning with partners in Australia, Denmark, the Middle East and South Africa. Jumping ahead to 2019, Prosci now has 30 partners with coverage in 60+ countries and delivery capabilities in 11 languages.
Delivering on Client Needs
Prosci understands that consistency and global standards are fundamental requirements for organizations choosing to build their change capability. Companies want to ensure the methodology and tools they adopt in one office or business unit are consistent with what their counterpart in another location adopts. Localization is also a key success factor in each market, where organizations need experienced change management instructors who align with their language and cultural needs.
From a procurement and contracting perspective, clients also need options. Prosci and our Partner Network can offer single-source contracting or a hybrid approach.

Extending Prosci’s Expertise Globally
Prosci is proud of the collaboration with our partners and the extent of our global reach. Through partnering with established local firms rather than individual-delivery agents, we have experienced global teams delivering the full breadth of Prosci’s solutions, including role-based development programs, advisory services, licensing and tools.
In addition to their client-specific engagements, each month our partners outside of the U.S. host 30 or more public, open-enrollment, Change Management Certification Programs. Adding in Prosci’s direct markets (U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand), over 60 public Prosci Certification Programs are offered each month around the world.
The Prosci Global Partner Program boasts over 120 experienced instructors. Each partner has completed an audit to ensure global delivery standards and has experience supporting the largest organizations around the world, including 80% of Fortune 500 brands.

Helping Organizations Build Change Capability
In April of 2019 we kicked off a global engagement with two organizations: a leading carpet manufacturer and a global technology provider. Both organizations have stood up centers of excellence for change management in the U.S. and are working to build enterprise-wide capability in change management. The U.S. parent offices of each company saw quick results from their change management investments, so training and advisory work soon followed outside the U.S. to support their global implementations.
Prosci Partners empowered these organizations to create a common language and standard change management deliverables across each global business unit. As a result, both clients have reported a strong baseline for future initiatives to quickly deploy their internal team of change practitioners.

A Shared Mission
Prosci Partners share in the mission to build internal change management competency with each engagement. With a localized approach that reflects Prosci’s global standard methodology to change management, organizations around the globe can move their change capabilities forward and elevate the results of key projects.
