“Active and Visible Sponsorship” is the number one success factor for managing change according to all nine of Prosci’s global Change Management benchmarking studies – by a three-to-one margin.

"In 2011, we embarked on a company wide project that marked a significant change in our human resources management systems. Cocentric significantly contributed to our Change Management Strategy by working with us to ensure that our senior leadership organization wide received the appropriate training programs to develop and enhance their change management competencies. As a direct result, we very successfully integrated new processes and practices that signified a dramatic shift in our talent management program. I have been involved with many organizational development consultants and training providers in the past and I have been nothing but impressed by Cocentric’s level of expertise, candid input and professionalism. They are passionate and committed to inspiring well-managed cultural change. The Prosci training was extremely well received and impactful."
