ADKAR Model is the change management methodology and five steps framework assisting the organization’s employees using the vital change processes. It was developed in 2003 by Jeffery Hiatt, one of the best-selling authors and founder of the change management consultancy ‘Prosci’.
ADKAR is originally the five steps framework namely Awareness, Desire, Knowledge, Ability, and Reinforcement. The finalization of the model took place after thorough research conducted with 59 countries and 900 organizations in total. The prime motto of the ADKAR model is to assist the company’s employees with needful coaching and support with respect to the change.
To reach the extent of success, every single milestone in ADKAR needs completion with an optimum level of efficiency. The model uses a 1-5 scale to determine the efficiency of the employees towards the accomplishment of every single milestone. In case the employee achieves point 3, or below, the step needs re-addressing before moving ahead. As per the protocols decided by Prosci, it can get treated as the barrier point.
