The ADKAR® Model

The Prosci ADKAR Model is a goal-oriented change management model to guide individual and organizational change.

Created by Prosci founder Jeff Hiatt, ADKAR is an acronym that represents the five outcomes an individual must achieve for change to be successful: awareness, desire, knowledge, ability, reinforcement®.

The ADKAR® model is a versatile tool that can be used as:

  • A Planning Tool that ensures that the five key elements have been built into the change management plans
  • A Coaching Tool that enables managers and supervisors to focus on the elements to be built with employees during various stages of change
  • An Assessment Tool that promotes conversations when engaged on one-­on­‐one basis, or used as a survey to zero-­‐in on the barriers to change, identify gaps and inform action
