First, Is the Prosci Canada Certification Popular? If so, Why?

Large and mid-sized organizations in Toronto, Montréal, Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Mississauga, and other cities across Canada are beginning to require more of their change practitioners, including to get a Prosci Canada change management certificate. Based on reviews that we conducted on change management job postings, there is an increase in firms asking for change management certifications. 

Although there is a wide range of Canada change practitioner certifications that change practitioners can be certified in, the Prosci Canada change management training program is one of the most popular because of two key factors:

  • Decades of proven research on how employees and managers go through change; and
  • Simplicity, and a focus on the individual versus focusing on the organization as a whole. Individuals are the ones that need to change how they do their work for an organizational or business change to be successful.

But, is it really worth the cost – when compared to other less costly Canada change management certifications?

As stated by Prosci Canada:

“Over the last few decades, Prosci has conducted extensive levels of change implementation research to identify the success factors for why projects were successful and why others were not – in the process we established the Prosci methodology and processes for practitioners to effectively implement successful change.”

Prosci often trumpets its rate of success for training and certifying change practitioners, including the news that its has trained and certified 75,000 individuals across the world.
