Course Description:

The course focuses on the effects of change in four key areas: individual, organisation, communication & stakeholder engagement and change practice. It is an intense course that requires delegates to prepare thoroughly and involves evening study. The course culminates in the Foundation examination on day three. 
It 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.
