Course Description:

This APM Group accredited course is based on The Effective Change Manager’s Handbook. 
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 and the Practitioner Examination on the morning of Day five.   
It is complementary to MSP®, M_o_R® and PRINCE2® but knowledge of these approaches is not a pre-requisite.
