About Change Management ® Foundation Workshop

The Change Management Foundation certification deals with the theories of how change impacts on and is affected by:

• the Individual • the Team • the Organisation • the Change Leader

This course provides an informative and valuable pathway of understanding through the maze of principles, theories and guidance on organisational change management, and gives a solid platform for clear best practice thinking and the application of useful tools and techniques for achieving successful change.

Change Management Qualifications and Exams
The Foundation level is aiming to measure whether a candidate would be able to act as an informed member of a change management team within an environment supporting the Change Management approaches. The Foundation Exam is a 1-hour, closed book exam consisting of 60 multiple-choice questions.

The Practitioner level is aiming to measure whether a candidate could apply the Change Management approaches within an environment supporting the Change Management approaches. The Practitioner Exam is a 3-hour, open book exam consisting of 4 scenario- based objective test questions.

Change Management Benefits
Studying Change Management will:

•  Help you understand how you react to change
•  Allow you to assist those around you as they go through change
•  Make you think about your team and its effectiveness in a different light
•  Give you powerful insight into how your organisation functions and reacts during change
•  Equip you to lead more effectively and sympathetically

This APM Group Accredited course is based on the book by Esther Cameron and Mike Green, “Making Sense of Change Management – 3rd Edition”, supplemented by the APMG Practitioner Handbook covering additional change management practitioner tools and techniques.

Course Overview
This course focuses on the effects of change in four key areas, individual, team, organisation and change leaders. It is an intense course that requires delegates to prepare thoroughly and involves evening study. The course is complementary to MSP®, M_o_R® and PRINCE2® but knowledge of these approaches is not a pre-requisite for attendance. The course provides an informative and valuable pathway of understanding through the maze of principles, theories and guidance on organisational change management, and gives a solid platform for clear best practice thinking and the application of useful tools and techniques for achieving successful change.

Target Audience
This course is ideal for: staff and teams involved in Change Management; those leading or about to lead and manage a change programme; those seeking the Foundation and Practitioner qualification; team members being effected by or effecting change; individuals who will need to support their colleagues, team and organisation through change, and manage themselves through change.

Objectives
The purpose of the qualification is to confirm that the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor Change Management guidance in a given organizational change situation at Foundation level.

Approach
This course is offered as either a 3 day Foundation, or a 5 day Practitioner course, and is a mixture of input and practical sessions, delivered by an APM Group approved trainer with practical experience of change management. Delegates should spend approximately 4-6 hours studying this pre-course material in order to be well prepared for the course.

Exams
Foundation: 1 hour, closed book, 60 multiple-choice questions.

Course Content

Day 1
The opening day sets the scene, context and structure for the change management course. Each session includes interactive group working activities and application of delegate’s learning to the case study. First up is the research into change programmes – when change goes wrong and when change goes right.

The next session gets into gear by examining Individuals and Change, starting with Learning Styles and Preferences. To illustrate. Delegates will be asked to apply their learning to a simple change scenario, to explore how different styles and preferences influence an individual’s response. A particular focus is Cameron and Green’s thoughts and ideas about the Four Psychological Approaches to Change, in which we examine Behavioural, Cognitive, Psychodynamic and Humanistic approaches.

Further topics discussed include Helping Others to Change and Personality and Change. Again, by applying their learning to a simple scenario, Delegates will explore how these different perspectives can affect and influence individual’s responses during change. The importance of effective and flexible approaches to communications during times of change is also highlighted. Finally, we look at Schein’s Transformative Change Model and consider the resisting forces at work when change happens.

Day 2
After a Day 1 debrief, the second day continues with the topic of Teams and Change, where we look initially at the Nature of a Team, Team Effectiveness and Behaviours. A particular focus will be on Glaser and Glaser’s Effective Team profile, together with Tuckman’s Team Development stages. Delegates will work together in teams to explore different aspects of teams and change, including applying their learning using briefings on project work underway in the case study scenario and to demonstrate effective team leadership.

Day 2 continues with the topic of Organizations and Change with a briefing session on how organisations really work when delegates explore Morgan’s Metaphors before assessing the metaphors that are at work or would benefit the organization in the case study. Further sessions explore Models of and Approaches to Organizational Change.

Day 3
After a Day 2 debrief, the third day turns attention to Leadership and Change, with discussion of Leaderships Styles and Emotional Competencies. Leadership and change, looking at:

• Leadership for different phases of change
• Leadership roles in the change process

All the course sessions will be completed by early afternoon on Day 3 so that attention can switch to final preparation of delegates for the Foundation Examination (1 hour).

    APM PFQ (Introductory Certificate) course review

    The PFQ (APM IC) was for me a good introduction into understanding the ‘Project Management’ world better. It helped me to identify areas and processes that I am not yet familiar with but I now have more confidence in tackling. Passing this course has further confirmed that I do want to go on to study for the APMP qualification. Chelsea B.

    PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course review

    I attended the project management qualification in December (having already attended the PRINCE2 course in November). Although a challenging subject, I found that the training was engaging because there was adequate time to not only listen but to also give examples and hear examples from other individuals from the class. This aids to help people’s understanding or misunderstanding in some cases and help breakdown the subject into easier chunks. It also helps that IPSO FACTO have in my opinion some of the most experienced instructors in the country, meaning that if you just don’t get something they bring their personal experience into the story to help your understanding.

    PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course review

    I just wanted to write and say how much I enjoyed the PRINCE2 course last week. The whole Ipso-Facto experience was brilliant, from your prompt help in providing information to determine whether the course was going to be right for me and arranging for Tim to call me, through registration and the quality of the preparation materials sent out, to starting the course with Julia Gosse. Julia is a fantastic trainer who not only clearly has bags of experience in project and business management but is also a very highly skilled trainer. Whilst there was a huge amount to learn, she made it easy to absorb and tolerated enormous amounts of questions with patience and kindness.

    The venue was easy to get to and we definitely appreciated the surroundings including the lovely cafe for lunch and the lake. I will definitely recommend Ipso-Facto as a local training provider and will come to you first if you are running courses I am interested in for the future.

    Oh and I passed both foundation and practitioner exams! [Rebecca S]

    Microsoft Excel level 2 course review

    The Excel Level 2 course was brilliant. Having not had much experience of using Excel, I wasn’t sure how much I’d learn but Tim the course tutor was great and went at a good pace, making sure I understood as we went along. I learnt things I wouldn’t have had a clue about before including; Conditional Formatting, Range Names, Pivot Tables, IF Functions, Vlookups and a range of shortcuts to make daily tasks much quicker. I’m looking forward to putting It into practice. Would definitely recommend!  Kirsty R.
