When a change is not implemented, it is usually because one or more of the five blocks is missing. Why do we need to see executives supporting a change? Why do we train people? As the answers to these "whys" became clear, what emerged were the five key building blocks of ADKAR.

Supports individuals moving through change and improves organizational outcomes. Created by Prosci founder Jeff Hiatt, ADKAR is an acronym that represents the five tangible and concrete outcomes that people need to achieve for lasting change: awareness, desire, knowledge, ability and reinforcement.
By outlining the goals and outcomes of successful change, the ADKAR Model is an effective tool for planning change management activities, equipping your leaders facilitating change, and supporting your employees throughout the change.

The most commonly cited reason for project failure is problems with the people side of change. Yet organizations often invest more in the technical side of change than in leading impacted people through times of change. The first step in managing any type of organizational change is understanding how to manage the change that a single individual is experiencing. Driving successful change in individuals and organizations requires new thinking, new models for change, and new tools.

The Prosci ADKAR Model
And it can be difficult and complex to understand. Breaking down change into distinct elements helps us understand the process of change and how to manage it. The theory of three distinct phases of change has roots in works from anthropologist Arnold Van Gennep in to Kurt Lewin in and William Bridges in The three states of change—current state, transition state, and future state—provide a powerful framework for the process-oriented approach of the ADKAR Model. The model clearly establishes how an individual moves through the change process, from their current state to their future state, and provides the insight needed for successful organizational change. These milestones guide the development of change management plans. Once you understand this and the root cause of their inability to change, you can develop a strategy for helping the individual move through the change.
