Dealing with change and more importantly, the impact of change is a high priority for all organizations. The Change Management Certification has been developed by APMG in partnership with the Change Management Institute (CMI), an independent, global professional association of change managers. Together they have developed a professional ‘body of knowledge’ for the discipline of change management. This body of knowledge now provides an independent benchmark for the professional knowledge expected of an effective change manager. This course is based upon this body of knowledge and helps you to pass the Foundation Change Management Certification exam from APMG.
APMG’s refreshed Change Management certification is fully aligned with the change management body of knowledge. The new syllabus samples a wide range of knowledge regarding the theory and practice of change management including:
* change and the individual
* change and the organization
* communication and stakeholder engagement and change practice
Benefits for Individuals – all about ‘know-how’
* Understand the human side of change and know how to help people deal more effectively with change, maintaining their commitment and bringing them successfully through the change process.

*Know how to identify and work with the stakeholders in a change initiative, and how to plan, execute and measure the effective communications required to build and maintain their engagement.
*Know how to assess the impacts of change, to develop effective change teams and to recognize and address resistance to change.
