The Change Management course has been developed by APMG International in partnership with the Change Management Institute.
The course content is based upon the 13 ‘knowledge areas’ of the Change Management Institute’s Change Management Body of Knowledge as reflected in The Effective Change Managers’ Handbook.
It is designed to help you understand effective leadership and management throughout change activities aligned to supporting individuals, teams and organisations, specifically focusing on change management practices including communications and stakeholder management.
Who should take the course?
This course is aimed at individuals who are involved in introducing change or for those affected by it. It can also benefit those involved in project, programme and portfolio management.
Benefits – individual?
Dealing with change and especially individuals’ reactions to it can be fraught with difficulty. This course allows you to understand the human side of change, learning how people will react, managing the reactions of change and ultimately being able to see change through a successful business transformation, (i.e. help your employees/colleagues through the Change Curve).
Benefits – organisation?
Change is an inevitable consequence of modern-day organisational life. It may be that there has been a change of management which has new approaches, a change of employment, a new project to be undertaken or perhaps changes in the economic or legal environments in which your organisation operates.
Having well informed team members who can contribute positively on an individual and corporate level to help mitigate the risk of failure and therefore avoid operational delays in your organisation is vital, ensuring customer demands continue to be met and building a sustainable business model.
