The change management profession is no longer in its infancy and is no longer reliant on parent disciplines such as organisational development or project management. Change management is itself in a state of change and growth – the number of jobs is increasing and organisations are actively seeking to build their change management capability.
The Effective Change Manager’s Handbook, Essential guidance to the change management body of knowledge – Edited by Richard Smith, David King, Ranjit Sidhu and Dan Skelsey, is the official guide to the CMI Body of Knowledge, designed to help practitioners, employers and academics define and practise change management successfully, and develop change management maturity in their organisation.
A single-volume learning resource, it covers the range of underpinning knowledge required to embed change successfully. It includes chapters from esteemed and established thought leaders on topics ranging from benefits management, stakeholder strategy, facilitation, change readiness, project management and education and learning support. Covering the whole process from planning to implementation, it offers practical tools, techniques and models to effectively support any change initiative.
ChangeQuest Managing Director Ranjit Sidhu has provided the section on Communication and Engagement. The content of this handbook is covered in the APMG accredited Change Management Practitioner Certification.
