Recently, someone asked me what it takes to become a change management specialist.  Since this is a rather new field with limited programs (see links below) for certifications, I pulled together key skills you should have to plan, deliver and execute the change management approach.


Skillsets

While change management is its own unique discipline, there are skill sets involved that you may have deep expertise in, and that can help you become an effective change management specialist. Some examples of these skills are:

Certification

Do you need more formal resources to learn the skills and traits of change management?  If so, the Prosci certification may be useful.  This one week program defines the value of the ADKAR model (Awareness, Desire, Knowledge, Ability, Reinforcement) in creating your change management approach.
