• Help you understand how you react to change

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.
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.
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.
The purpose of the Practitioner 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. A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the Change Management approaches and techniques to a real change scenario.
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.
Foundation: 1 hour, closed book, 60 multiple-choice questions.
Practitioner: 3 hours, open book, 4 scenario- based objective test questions.
