Insights from Aiming ADKAR at Today's Change Challenges

Change Enabling Systems and Multilingual Change Leaders
A change-enabling system is a platform of disciplines that coordinates with change management to help organizations execute their unique changes successfully. Given the many options available, today’s business leaders need a “multilingual” understanding of disciplines, so they can build collaborative platforms that truly activate their unique change-enabling systems. Join Tim Creasey as he presents his cutting-edge research on change-enabling systems and multilingual change leadership.

Elevate Your Influence by Speaking the Language of Value
No matter where you are in your personal change management journey, you can have a direct and lasting impact on the success of change initiatives in your organization by learning to speak the language of ‘value’. Value comes from solving problems – real problems – and understanding what matters to people in various roles throughout your organization.
It Starts with a Change Practitioner
Change practitioners have the knowledge and skills to help people embrace change by supporting them through the change process. For many change practitioners, this is a full-time role. For others, change management capabilities are applied in the context of related disciplines. In this webinar, we will explore the change practitioner role, variations in how it comes to life within organizations, and practical paths to grow and succeed in this role.
Impact of Cultural Context on Change Management
Ninety percent (90%) of Prosci research participants rate cultural awareness and the impact on change management as important or very important. How does cultural awareness influence change management? What impact do the perceptions of change management have across global regional cultures? And, how do the cultural norms in your organization impact the effective application of change management practices? Join Karen Ball, Prosci’s Director of Development, to explore unique challenges and adaptations based on the cultural context for change. We will examine cultural awareness, regional cultural considerations, and the impact of six cultural dimensions on change management as a basis for comparison and developing actionable insights.
At the Intersection of Agile and Change Management
Agile uses iterative development cycles to improve change outcomes. Change management drives employee adoption and usage of solutions to improve change outcomes. The challenge is figuring out how to effectively integrate these two complimentary, emergent and crucial disciplines. Prosci tackled the issue the way we know how – with research.
