Change is inevitable. Personally and professionally, it is the very foundation of new opportunities. With the current level of business, technology, economic and social disruption, the demand for much faster and more agile responses to change has increased, making effective change management crucial for today’s organizations.

Change Management is a collaborative framework developed by APMG International in association with the Change Management Institute (CMI), a global, independent and non-profit organization operated by members who strive to push the boundaries of the change management profession. This Change Management Foundation online course provides professionals and organizations with in-depth knowledge of best practices for dealing with change initiatives before, during and after their implementation.

This Change Management Foundation online course explores the core concepts, theories and strategies of change management, providing professionals with a better understanding of the value of change and the most proactive and efficient approaches for enabling its implementation. The course provides insight into why change management should be more attitudinal than technical, and how change management processes can be adapted in a more proactive and positive manner.

Benefits for Individuals

To be a successful change manager, you need a reputable qualification that gives you a fundamental understanding of a wide range of methods, techniques and practices that can align with the culture of your organization. Being qualified in APMG Change Management Foundation demonstrates skills and knowledge of a renowned change management framework that has an excellent syllabus aligned with the Change Management Body of Knowledge (CMBoK).

This course explains how to manage change. It offers several time-tested and popular methods of change management, including impact assessments, stakeholder analysis, change plans and many more.

Benefits for Organizations

These days, change management training is essential for key actors who lead themselves and others through new ways of working in an organization. Like project management, change management has become a standard requirement across many growing organizations that wish to respond to the high volume of change opportunities created by technological innovations, competition, new regulations and other factors.

Training your staff in change management can help you to successfully develop competent change leaders who can help organizations in implementing changes efficiently and effectively.
