FAQ

Change Management –  APMG/CMI vs PROSCI

One of the most frequent questions we get concerns the differences between PROCSI and APMG/CMI certifications.

ALC’s Change Management training comes from APMG and CMI (the Change Management Institute) which are both based in UK. PROSCI is US-based. The two approaches are not really competitors. Rather, they are complementary. They approach the same subject but from a different perspective. In an ideal world people would do both. A similar situation exists with Business Analysis between IIBA in USA and BCS in UK.

ALC recommends the APMG/CMI approach as a more suitable and effective starting point from an organisational perspective, particularly if you have a group of people to be trained.

For a comprehensive assessment of the two approaches we recommend this paper: Change management certification courses from APMG and Prosci®. Which one is right for you?
