A FRAMEWORK FOR MANAGING THE PEOPLE SIDE OF CHANGE
Organizations must continually change and evolve to succeed. Yet changes such as technology deployments or new processes often fail because leaders and teams put too much focus on the technical aspects of the change. For successful change, organizations must also focus on the people side—and how to ensure that each individual embraces and adopts the change.
Prosci has been conducting in-depth change research for more than 20 years. We’ve studied how individuals experience and respond to change, as well as the strategies of change leaders around the globe.
Based on our best-practices research, we developed the Prosci Methodology for change management. When applied, it supports individuals in transitioning from the current state to the future state, an approach that leads to successful project outcomes.

THE MAIN COMPONENTS OF THE PROSCI METHODOLOGY
The Prosci Methodology is one of the most widely used approaches to change management in the world, and it continues to evolve.
In response to practitioner feedback and changing customer needs, and to prepare for future change trends, we refreshed the methodology in 2021. The updated Prosci Methodology is more actionable and accessible, and we believe the enhancement will elevate client success in incredible ways.
Although the Prosci Methodology encompasses a variety of models, tools, assessments, processes and more, today it is comprised of three main components:

STRUCTURED, SCALABLE AND ADAPTABLE
The success of any organizational change depends on the success of change management in encouraging individuals to embrace, adopt and utilize a required change. The change management methodology itself must be structured enough to be repeatable, but also flexible enough to meet the needs of any organization. That’s the Prosci Methodology:
Structured – The Prosci Methodology takes what we know about people, change and results and organizes it into a simple process that practitioners can apply to develop change management strategies and plans that increase adoption and usage on a particular initiative.
Scalable and adaptable – You can adapt and flex the Prosci Methodology to achieve success in any type of change, where results and outcomes depend on adoption and usage, and in any type and size of organization.
