Prosci Sponsor Briefing Program

Strong leadership is a key factor in building and deploying any change. We speak to sponsors directly and demonstrate to sponsors and executive members exactly how critical change management is to their continued success.

Course Description

Executive sponsorship has been cited as the greatest contributor to successful change in all nine of Prosci’s benchmarking studies—by a three-to-one margin. This half-day program provides senior leaders with the knowledge and ability to improve change outcomes. Leveraging an organization’s current strategic change portfolio, we demonstrate the critical connection between effective change management and achieving business results.
