Qualification Training Course
Change Management Practitioner
Managing change and, more importantly, the impact of change, can be stressful and difficult to get right. The ability to lead people, teams and organisations through change has become a necessity in today’s economy. Stakeholders, team members and customers all have different attitudes and perspectives on change. 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.
If you are a project, programme or change manager and either responsible for or involved in implementing change, then this course is for you. You will learn about a wide range of tools and methods, and gain fresh skills and a new-found confidence to successfully deal with all aspects of change.
This APM Group accredited course will help you gain a better understanding of different frameworks and ways of approaching and leading change at an individual, team or organisational level. Four main themes are covered:
- 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.
Candidates who undertake the Practitioner level will spend another day building on the knowledge gained of the four change areas from the Foundation level, achieving a deeper knowledge of the principles of change management and an understanding of how to implement and manage change in their organisations. The Practitioner exam is taken on the morning of the 5th day and is a 3-hour multiple-choice paper based on a given scenario and split into 4 main sections comprising 20 questions each. The course manual and Practitioner handbook may be taken into the exam. The pass mark is 50%.
Candidates who have passed the Change Management Practitioner exam can put Change Management Practitioner on their business cards.
There are no prerequisites for taking the courses, however pre-course study is required to help you fully prepare. It is necessary to pass the Foundation level before taking the Practitioner exam.
