Change is a constant in today's dynamic and hyper-competitive business world.

Yet, 70% of change initiatives fail (according to the Kotter Institute and others), because those leading change either ignore or forget the people and cultural side of change.

There are two major factors that contribute to change not being successfully implemented. The first concerns the change process, which does not start early enough and is not effectively managed, and the second concerns the individuals who are impacted by the change because they are not effectively guided through their personal transitions.

Business leaders, line managers, and change agents from all levels of the organization MUST be equipped with the right skills and knowledge to effectively lead transformational change.

In recognition of a deep need expressed within the IT industry, Pink Elephant has redesigned its organizational change management portfolio to better meet the demands faced by today's IT and business professionals.

Pink's portfolio includes:

Organizational Change Management Essentials – Learn the core concepts and practices intrinsic to organizational change management, as well as how to gain employee commitment and overcome resistance. Participants will gain knowledge of techniques for inspiring and leading staff to embrace and sustain change to keep the organization moving in the right direction.

Organizational Change Management Applied – This course goes beyond what is learned in Organizational Change Management Essentials and, using Pink's 20/20 change model, participants will engage in many practical exercises to apply best practices for leading change.


This two-day course will provide you with the knowledge and tools necessary for understanding transformational leadership and change. You will specifically learn about strategies to combat resistance. In addition, you will become familiar with the factors that influence an individual's response to change and the various models and techniques that apply to successfully enabling individuals, groups, and organizations to understand, adopt, and sustain change.

Throughout this course, you will learn about the core concepts and practices intrinsic to organizational change management. This course also fully prepares you for the exam leading to the Organizational Change Management Essentials certification.


  • With an emphasis on real-world application and practical knowledge, Pink Elephant's Organizational Change Management Essentials course provides the necessary knowledge to help you better facilitate change initiatives in your organization. This is accomplished by providing practical, hands-on tools to participants who will collaboratively work in small teams to perform specific exercises.
  • Other organizational change management courses do not provide any true practical knowledge or content. Pink's course separates out the theory and provides practical guidance to help individuals navigate change situations using project-based how-to organizational change management.
  • Our learning objectives are more focused because unnecessary sources have been removed and others have been added to create a true flow of information to help the participant understand the people side of change and how to lead an organization through the people side of any project.
  • The course content has been developed by contributors who have senior managerial experience successfully leading others though major change, as well as post-graduate degrees in organizational behavior/change management studies.

  • Learn how to differentiate between change at individual, team/group, and organization-wide levels.
  • Learn about several relevant academic theories, models, and concepts that leaders need for taking individuals, groups, and organizations successfully through the process of change.
  • Learn about an individual's response to change that includes why some resist change and how you can help them navigate through their personal transition journey.
  • Understand group and team development and dynamics, as well as the influence they have on the group, the individual, and the organization.
  • Learn about organizational culture and complexity, and why culture is often the most challenging aspect of organizational change management. Learn how some of the most notable academics and theorists have contributed to organizational and cultural change.
  • Learn to associate organizational management with project management and be introduced to Pink Elephant's 20/20 Change Model.
  • Learn the common roles needed to plan for organizational change management and execute the change activities defined in an organizational change management plan.
  • Understand how to identify stakeholders and develop a stakeholder engagement plan.
  • Learn the best practices for creating a communication plan, as well as an education and learning plan for organizational change initiatives and how to measure and sustain organizational change adoption.
