By outlining the goals and outcomes of successful change, the ADKAR Model is an effective tool for planning change management activities, equipping your leaders facilitating change, and supporting your employees throughout the change.
Understand the people side of change
Support individual changes to achieve organisational results.
One of the most popular models for change management, the Prosci ADKAR® Model provides a structured approach to understand change at the individual level. The ADKAR model helps sponsors, managers and frontline personnel understand their change journey. For change managers, it provides a structure for the development of change plans and milestones to measure change progress with individuals and groups.
Drive Change With ADKAR
ADKAR facilitates integration of individual and organisational change.
Organisations don’t change, individuals do. The success of any project, large or small, ultimately depends on each employee doing their job differently. What we experience as change is that individual journey multiplied across all impacted employees.
The ADKAR model helps us understand how change impacts each employee and how to support them through the change. The Prosci methodology uniquely integrates individual and organisational change management to deliver business results.
