LOVELAND, Colo., June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Prosci, a world leader in change management research, released today a new tool for assessing the change leadership maturity of any organization. With this new web-based application, change professionals have a framework for establishing the baseline of organizational maturity related to managing and leading change.
"This tool is a breakthrough for organizations needing to build change capability," explains Susie Taylor, Prosci Account Manager. "Now organizations can establish a starting point for their work in building change leadership competencies at every level in the organization. With the Change Management Maturity Model Audit, leading organizations can evaluate where they are today and create a roadmap for building core competencies."
The Prosci Change Management Maturity Model Audit breaks organizational change management maturity into five Capability Areas: Leadership, Application, Competencies, Standardization and Socialization. "The five Capability Areas in the Prosci Change Management Maturity Model Audit add a new level of sophistication and specificity," states Tim Creasey, Prosci Chief Development Officer. "Rather than a general description of maturity, users can now evaluate and understand their organization's maturity across five observable dimensions, making the analysis more robust and creating a great jumping-off point for change management deployment efforts."
The Prosci Change Management Maturity Model Audit is completed by evaluating 50 factors that have emerged from Prosci's decade of research and experience with clients. Users evaluate their organization using a rubric scoring system that provides descriptions of organization maturity Levels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 for each of the 50 factors. By selecting the level that best describes their organization for all 50 factors, users create a complete picture of their organization's change management maturity. The resulting output is an overall tally for change management maturity, scores for each of the five Capability Areas and specific factor scores.
"The new Prosci Change Management Maturity Model Audit is more than a diagnostic tool," comments Mike Davis, Prosci Account Team Lead. "The 50 factors in the audit provide targets for organizations working to improve benefit realization and outcome achievement by using a more holistic approach for one of the most critical success factors, the people side of change. As an organization moves up the maturity model, projects and initiatives deliver greater value and expected return on investment more regularly. Organizations with higher levels of change management maturity also build a legacy of successful change."
The Prosci Change Management Maturity Model Audit is available for purchase at the Change Management Learning Center. The price is $89 for each Change Management Maturity Model Audit access code. Customers are provided with unique login credentials that allow them to complete the audit.
