Change Management Foundation and Practitioner Course
What topics are covered by the course?
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.
Who should attend?

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 in your organisation, then this course is for you.
