Combined Change Management Foundation and Practitioner Course


Introduction

This Foundation/Practitioner course on Organisational Change Management is based on the Change Management Body of Knowledge as defined by the Change Management Institute (CMI), an independent, global professional association of change managers. This body of knowledge provides an independent benchmark for the professional knowledge expected of an effective change manager.

The course comprehensively covers both the theory and the practice of change management including:

  • Change and the individual
  • Change and the organisation
  • Communication and stakeholder engagement
  • Change practice

 Accredited by APMG, the course is structured in two modules: a stand-alone Foundation Level (3 days) and a follow-on Practitioner Level (2 days). These can be taken individually or combined. Choose the option that best meets your needs.  If you are interested in going to Practitioner level we recommend taking both modules in the one sitting if possible.
