Let's Talk

The Prosci Methodology and materials have been instrumental in raising the level of awareness for a more structured and disciplined approach to change management at Husky. The simplicity of the ADKAR Model makes it easy for the facilitator and participants to apply to real life scenarios.

An Organizational Standard for Change Management

Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd. is the world's largest brand name supplier of injection molding equipment and services to the plastics industry. Husky designs, manufactures and integrates the industry’s most comprehensive range of injection molding equipment, including machines, molds, hot runners, auxiliaries and integrated systems. With more than 40 service and sales offices and employing approximately 4,000 people worldwide, Husky supports customers in over 100 countries.

Husky began applying Prosci change management to a strategic initiative at the recommendation of a strategic partner. The team immediately recognized the value that such an easy-to-use and powerful methodology brought to their organization. 

"Introducing this methodology to Husky has increased the desire to incorporate change management into overall project plans that in turn have, and continue to, ensure we maintain our position as a top industrial leader in our field." 

— Rita Cepparo, HR Manager



Scaling change management

While a strategic initiative originally brought the role of change management into the spotlight, Husky decided that based on its past experience with Prosci’s change management methodology it was time to expand its application to other projects. Husky decided to embrace Prosci as its organizational standard for change management.

The flexibility of a Prosci License

As the organization was familiar with Prosci's methodology and its results, the team got the go-ahead to acquire a Prosci ADKAR® Enablement License. This license provides access to a variety of Prosci tools and training materials such as the following, and much more:

  • Leading Your Team Through Change (program)
  • Taking Charge of Change (program)
  • ADKAR: A Model for Change (book)
  • Change Management: The People Side of Change (book)
  • Employee's Survival Guide to Change (book)




By using the simple framework of the Prosci ADKAR Model, project managers of the strategic initiative were able to easily convey the value change management brought to the project and how other project team members and people managers could support their staff in reaching adoption and utilization of the new solution. The results on this project also inspired further awareness of change management throughout Husky.

With a Prosci License, Husky can now provide employees with role-based training and tools to build awareness of change management and the ability to apply its principles to their daily work and to other important initiatives.
