The People Side of Change is initiated by consulting firms Gwynt and The Process Pros. We believe in practice what you preach. Both companies have integrated Prosci’s® change management methodology into the service offerings to provide a structured, people-focused approach and change management toolset. This approach addresses the key people issues, through assessing an individual’s or a group’s readiness to adapt effectively to change. Business change activities are then customized to transition employees from old ways of working to new – ensuring planned commercial business change benefits are effectively realised.
