Custom Change Management to Meet Your Goals

Our change management and leadership services are specifically designed for higher education settings.

To support a successful transformation, our experts will assess your institution’s:  

  • Transformation goals to understand the degree of change and the need for change management activities 
  • Current change management efforts and practices and identify gaps and opportunities  
  • Desired outcomes to ensure the right activities occur at the right time to support adoption across your institution 

Get an overview of your institution’s current state and a change management roadmap to successfully get to its desired outcomes.  

You will receive a custom change management report that outlines:  

  • How your institution can prepare its people, processes, and technology to support your institution’s transformation and adoption efforts   
  • The necessary communications to keep stakeholders informed throughout the transformation journey 
  • Training opportunities that can empower your teams to adopt new ways of working

  • Alignment within the project team on ultimate outcomes and goals, and critical areas to address  
  • Recommendations for institutional and/or project-level change management to support ongoing modernization and transformation  
  • A common leadership approach to addressing the challenges and opportunities associated with change
