Organizational Change Management Foundation Certification Course

COURSE OVERVIEW

Change is a constant in today’s dynamic and hyper-competitive business world.

Business leaders and line managers MUST be equipped with the right skills and knowledge to effectively lead transformational change.

What is often ignored or forgotten when leading a change initiative is the people and cultural side of change, resulting in 70% of change initiatives failing (according to the Kotter Institute). Don’t be on the wrong side of that statistic!

There are two major factors that contribute to change not being successfully implemented. The first is that the change process is not managed effectively, and the second is because people impacted by the change are not guided effectively.

The Organizational Change Management Foundation Certification course is a 3-day program that equips you with the knowledge and tools to understand transformational leadership and change, guidance on gaining employee commitment and overcoming resistance, and techniques to inspire your staff to embrace change and sustain it to keep your organization moving in the right direction.

The course also fully prepares you for the exam leading to the Change Management Foundation Certification.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

During the course, there are four major areas covered to ensure that you understand the concepts, terms, principles, models and approaches for effectively leading and managing the people side of change:

  1. Change & The Individual
