Prosci’s Best Practices in Change Management research indicates that a key obstacle to success of major change projects is employee resistance and the ineffective management of the people side of change. Employees resist change when they lack the awareness of why change is happening and what is in it for them? Employees also demonstrate resistance when the uncertainty around change is high, which stems from a lack of involvement in the change process.
Jack Welch has been quoted as saying the formula for success is Q x A = E. In other words the technical quality of the project times organizational acceptance equals effectiveness. This program was designed to bridge the gap between the work of Change Management Practitioners and the language and process of Project Management professionals. It is a role-based training program for the Project Teams and Project Support Functions.
Building an organizational competency in change management involves more than just training. Additional key elements include “standards of practice” to guide the use of change management; selecting a “common language and set of tools” to promote organizational uniformity and ease of use; structure, to determine “executive sponsorship”; and formalized accountability to ensure the shared responsibility is measured and rewarded at all levels appropriately. So although training isn’t the only decision and action, it too forms an important component in building a change management competency.
This session facilitated by Prosci Canada’s executives and features an in depth review of the Prosci methodology, research and the ROI of change management.
