    How the Prosci Practitioner eToolkit Helps Towards Change Management Success

    Aug 2, 2020 | Posted by Michael Campbell


    Why are Prosci's CM tools important?

    When attending CMC's Prosci Practitioner Certification participants are introduced to the Prosci Practitioner eToolkit. During the course participants explore the contents of the eToolkit, learning how to apply the tools to their change projects. So why are these tools important?

    • They help establish a repeatable process
    • They provide a comprehensive approach to change management
    • They support roles across the organisation
    • They drive change success

    How do they establish a repeatable process?

    The Prosci methodology is a comprehensive 3-phase process that provides a scalable approach to change management. Prosci's eToolkit is structured in such a way that not all of the tools and templates are required for each change. As a change practitioner you make the decision about which tools will provide you with the best information to manage the change and reach change success.

    Prosci's work is research based; its latest study represents the world's largest body of knowledge on managing the people side of change. The study compiles 20 years of industry-leading research, uncovering lessons learned from change management practitioners and consultants, and revealing emerging trends in the field. The tools are built from these findings and are designed to be holistic and easy-to-use.

    Within the tools you access by attending the Prosci Practitioner Certification is the ADKAR model. The Prosci methodology leverages both the Prosci ADKAR model for individual change and the three phase process for organisational change. This integrated approach ensures that your organisational change strategies address the needs of the individuals actually being impacted by the change.

    How do they drive change success?

    The tools enable successful application of the Prosci Methodology. They drive the people dependent portion of a project's return on investment and benefits realisation by analysing the type, scale, impact and people risk of the change and how change averse or ready an organisation is. This informs change practitioners in their planning and execution of the 5 plans detailed by the Methodology. Effective change management through the application of these plans can lead to change success.


    How do they provide a comprehensive approach to change management?

    The eToolkit is laid out in a step-by-step process. Each step contains a description of the step, advice, videos about specific aspects and any documents or tools relevant to that step. This is extremely helpful and informative to any Practitioner, new or old, in guiding them through the Prosci Methodology.

    The eToolkit also acts as a library of online, downloadable content to help practitioners through their change. Finesta Financial is included in the toolkit as a case study for how to use the tools. It allows you to learn about the methodology being used in practice and see the detailed sample deliverables from Finesta.

    How do they support roles across the organisation?

    The Prosci Methodology is comprehensive when it comes to engaging with roles across the organisation. The eToolkit supports change leaders, managers and practitioners, to engage project managers and their team members, the PMO, related discipline professionals and consultants in working together to deliver the change.

    So whether you are responsible for leading the people side of projects or a SME on a specific project or change initiative, the eToolkit is your go-to resource for applying a structured Best Practices based approach to your projects.
