More about change management and managing change courses

What is Change Management?

Drivers

Globalization, technology, regulation, competition, and consumer demands may all drive change.

This is especially true now that Covid has destroyed many of old certainties. The ‘new normal’ involves many staff working from home. The need for organisations to pay for expensive office space is declining.

Change projects

Organisational change initiatives are implemented via change projects and programmes. These programmes enable organisational transformation to take place. For example, an IT system enables a business to become more efficient. However the IT system could become a wasted investment if the staff do not adopt it and use it as part of their work.

Unpredictable

Changing the way your staff operate is challenging. Successful, productive outcomes are not guaranteed. Those affected can respond in many ways. These responses are especially unpredictable.

For many people, changing their working environment is unsettling and stressful. Some people may embrace it, others may resist.

Journey

Organisational transformation is like a journey. You plan a journey which takes you from your current situation to a future situation. If your staff don’t come with you on the journey, your initiative will fail.

Tools

Change managers use tools and processes to plan, manage and support transformation initiatives. The tools you will learn to use in your change management training course serve a variety of purposes, from helping staff make a smooth transition, to overcoming resistance and ensuring desirable outcomes.

Leaders

Effective transformation requires strong communication, change management training, stakeholder management and support.

Change leaders must work as a team. Providing adequate leadership, mentoring, information, and autonomy to others in the organisation.

Change professionals must be leaders. They must understand individuals and help them move through what can be a turbulent time. They must provide leadership, mentoring, information, and autonomy to others in the organisation.

As a change manager you will be working with many people within your organisation. You will need to be a confident communicator with great interpersonal skills.

Change manager careers

Increasing demand for skills

To respond to technological change organisations are undertaking more projects and more programmes. In turn, this is increasing the demand for managers with the necessary skills.

Virtual and live classroom change management training

Live or virtual classroom courses

Business change management courses are delivered either online, through our virtual learning portal, or in-person in a traditional classroom if you attend our London training venue.

Change management courses adhere to a fixed schedule - usually 9 am to 5 pm. Training lasts between 1 to 4 days.

Virtual change management courses offer all the advantages of traditional classroom courses without the hassle of travel. You learn with the aid of a subject expert and professional trainer from the comfort of your home!

What tools are used for virtual classroom training?

We use advanced online learning technology for our virtual classrooms. As a student, all you need to attend an online event is a computer, and an internet connection. A webcam is optional.

Our virtual learning platform used interactive whiteboards, chat tools, presentations, quizzes, audio, video, and break-out rooms to enhance your change management training course.

Our virtual classrooms aim to replicate the feel of traditional classroom training, without needing to travel to and from a training venue.

The Effective Change Manager's Handbook

The Effective Change Managers Handbook covers the full scope of the Change Management Institute’s (CMI) Body of Knowledge. In addition, the Handbook informs the APMG Change Management course syllabus and is a UK standard for change management.

If you purchase either an APMG Change Management Foundation classroom course or an APMG Change Management Foundation and Practitioner classroom course, you will also receive a copy of The Effective Change Manager’s Handbook. If you live outside the UK, you will receive a digital copy.

The Handbook summarizes several well-known change theories. It combines them with proven best-practice change approaches and techniques. The result is a range of practical tools suitable for change managers to use on change programs.
