Prosci’s 10th Best Practices Study is now open for input. The study marks a major milestone for the change management discipline – twenty years of Prosci change management research. This study will produce the largest body of knowledge in the field and provide insights from thousands of change practitioners and leaders.
Prosci is changing the way they conduct their change management research. This will mean more opportunities for you to participate and benefit from this research. You will also have more timely access to the research results, which in turn will support more effective decision making when implementing change.
