Brio Change Launches the First Change Management Expert System in the Cloud: Sherpa T.O.

An innovative solution to meet the needs of managers and professionals in change management and address industry issues

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 7, 2012) - Brio Change inc., a consulting firm and leader in change management, today launched the first virtual expert system in change management at HEC Montréal.

Sherpa T.O. (transforms your organization) leverages 200,000 cumulated hours (150 clients and 300 projects) of practical experience in change management powered by an expert system in the cloud designed for change management managers and advisers, whether they are novices or experts.

"We applied our knowledge and research to develop an innovative system-an actual virtual coach-to guide managers and provide them with practical recommendations throughout their change management project," said Sylvie Charbonneau, President, Brio Change, and co-conceptor of Sherpa T.O.

Based on best practices, Sherpa T.O. uses a 5-step approach, along with 14 tools, 3 action plans, 5 project status indicators, 1 executive dashboard and 1 post-mortem plan. These interactive and illustrated tools give users a quick overview of their project status. Each tool allows users to build action plans in change management, communications and training in real time.

"It is very inspiring for me to see the fruits of my many years of research in change management in the field integrated into a unique system available in the cloud," said Céline Bareil, associate professor at HEC Montréal and co-conceptor of Sherpa T.O.

With just one click, experts and managers can produce a dashboard to get the big picture of their change management project, allowing them to devote more time to bringing about change rather than communicating its progress.
