Prosci's Advanced Change Management Program


"As organizations begin to apply change management and build organizational capabilities, they need recognized experts to lean upon. Prosci's Advanced Change Management program gives practitioners the foundation they need - for both the discipline and the surrounding success factors - to become the experts and 'go-to' resources for change management in their organization."   ~ Tim Creasey, Prosci Chief Development Officer


Prosci's Advanced Change Management Program is a three-day experience designed to help change management practitioners become recognized experts in their organization by expanding their understanding of change management, its history and evolution, and the environmental success factors that surround effective application of change management in organizations today. The Advanced Program also addresses change management from an enterprise perspective - looking at both how to assess and evaluate the portfolio of change across the organization and how to build organizational capabilities in change management.

In Prosci's Advanced Change Management Program, you build on your understanding of the frameworks and context for effectively managing the people side of change. The program is not about simply getting more tools for change management, it is about stepping back and understanding the environment in which change management can be successful. Upon completion, you will be better equipped to build change management capabilities in your organization and coach other practitioners in your organization as they apply change management on their projects.


Who should attend:

  • Passionate about change management

  • Desire to become the "go-to" resource in your organization

  • Desire to build your ability to coach others who are doing change management work

  • Desire to expand your own personal knowledge of the discipline and its evolution

  • Experience applying change management on various initiatives

  • Ability to complete the pre-work assignments: change management literature review, portfolio management data collection, case study preparation and state of the union overview (estimate 40 - 50 hours)

  • Completed your change management certification (*pre-requisite - learn more about the 3-day certification program)

Learning objectives:

  • To understand the origins and evolution of change management as a discipline, particularly looking at where different approaches have come from and how they fit in with one another

  • To analyze change management models and approaches across numerous spectrums of thought (psychology vs business, individual vs organizational, descriptive vs prescriptive) in order to better develop the "right approach" for a given unique situation

  • To identify the surrounding environmental success factors that are necessary and inter-related to the application of a change management approach or process

  • To understand the phenomenon of change saturation, why it occurs, the consequences (to individuals, to projects and to the organization), and to apply a structured process for understanding and managing the portfolio of change

  • To apply a process and holistic model for building organizational change management capabilities and competencies by treating change management deployment as both a project and a change to be managed

  • To learn about the complexities of sponsorship, examine different complex sponsorship models (including revolving and split sponsorship) and develop tactics for engaging senior leaders in their role as sponsors of change

  • To examine the conundrum of managers and supervisors in times of change related to 1) competency building, 2) on boarding with a given change, and 3) coaching employees through a given change

  • To look more deeply into resistance management and the foundations of resistance prevention, the root causes of resistance and how resistance manifests itself in times of change

  • To review case studies of change management application and diagnose strengths, opportunities for improvement and weaknesses or gaps


Prosci's Advanced Change Management Program is not about pulling the chair closer to the desk and
bending farther over it - it is about pushing your chair back from the desk to understand the "bigger picture".


Structure of the program:

Day 1
  • History and Evolution of Change Management - participants complete a literature review of 15 key works in the field and deliver a "compare and contrast" presentation of two of the works
  • Analysis of Change Management Models - examining how different approaches to change management emerge and take shape
  • Environmental Success Factors - six factors that fall outside of the change management process but directly contribute to the application and success of change management
Day 2
  • Change Portfolio Management and Change Saturation - introduction to Prosci's Change Saturation Model and a structured process and toolset for building a portfolio perspective of the efforts underway
  • Enterprise Change Management Strategies and Deployment Methods - treating organization change management capability and competency building as a project and a change with a research-based, holistic approach
  • Evening presentation: State of the Union of change management
    at your organization
Day 3
  • Sponsorship Engagement and Coaching - evaluating complex sponsorship models and moving from "what sponsors should do" (a topic in the 3-day certification) to "how do I get sponsor to fulfill their role"
  • Manager and Supervisor Competency Development - balancing manager and supervisor engagement, role fulfillment and competency building
  • Applied Resistance Management - evaluating resistance prevention, proactive resistance management and reactive resistance management
  • Advanced Change Management Applications - Case Study Analysis
