About this Course

This course is a continuation from the Change Management Foundation course. Attending this course immediately after the Foundation course is highly recommended to achieve your best learning outcomes; it will also help to maximise your chances of exam success.

Change comes about in various forms within organisations due to many factors including projects, team restructuring, business analysis identifying different ways of working, company mergers, and outsourcing. No matter how big or small, they all need to be facilitated with Change Management to ensure a successful result.

The purpose of the Change Management Practitioner course is to ensure a student has sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor Change Management guidance in a given organisational change situation. Upon completion of the course a student should, with suitable direction be able to start applying the Change Management approaches and techniques to a real change initiative. Their individual Change Management expertise, complexity of the change initiative and the support provided for the use of Change Management approaches in their work environment will all be factors in the Practitioners success.

The Change Management 2015 (Foundation and Practitioner) qualification is designed to provide a robust foundation of knowledge for anyone involved in organisational change initiatives. Upon completion of this combined qualification students will have the knowledge and understanding necessary to contribute constructively to teams specifying, developing, implementing and sustaining change initiatives.
