Change Management Practitioner And Foundation 5-day Classroom
12 February @ 08:00 - 16 February @ 17:00£1295
Managing change, and more importantly the impact of change, can be stressful and difficult to get right. The biggest hurdle to overcome is the resistance to change and yet this so often has the least focus in a change programme.
To achieve successful transformation, you need to address both the process and the people aspects of change. The ability to manage people, teams and organisations in uncertain times has become a necessity in today’s economy. Stakeholders, team members and customers all have different attitudes and perspectives on change. Understanding each of these and dealing with the emotions that surface, requires more than a standard project and programme management approach.
If you are responsible for, or involved in, implementing change then this course is for you.

Change Management Practitioner Course Content
This APM Group accredited course will help you gain a better understanding of different frameworks and ways of approaching and leading change at an individual, team or organisational level. Four main themes are covered:
- Individual change
Whatever the level or degree of organisational change, the people on the receiving end are the ones who will ultimately cause the change to be a success or a failure. The issues people face when dealing with change and approaches for dealing with resistance are covered.
- Team change
This module focuses on the challenges faced by teams when they are formed and
transitioning through change initiatives, and approaches for how to manage them.
- Organisational change
This module focuses on how to select the most appropriate approaches and frameworks for the extent of change required and the organisational culture you are working within.
- Leading change
A thread running throughout the course is the crucial role of leadership. Different styles of
leadership and their suitability to different types of complex scenarios and organisations are explored.
A great course – well delivered, informative, never dull. Long days, but they have zipped by. I would wholly recommend this course to anyone remotely connected to managing people!
