Course Overview

Our Change Management course is designed to help organisations and their people manage the impact of change and provide techniques to effectively plan and implement successful transformation initiatives.

Based on the Effective Change Manager's Handbook - aligned to the Institute's Change Management Body of Knowledge (CMBoK), our courses explore how change affects, and is affected by, individuals, teams, organisations and change leaders, equipping individuals with the knowledge, theories and techniques to:

  • Unlock resistance to change
  • Provide effective support and motivation to individuals and teams to embrace change
  • Draw from a range of professional approaches to implement change smoothly and effectively
  • Manage and inform key stakeholders throughout the change process
  • Speed up the implementation of change initiatives
  • Realise the benefits of projects, programs and other change initiatives.

Successful candidates will have the knowledge and understanding necessary to contribute constructively to teams specifying, developing, implementing and sustaining change initiatives.

Upon their successful completion of the course, attendees will have the knowledge to:

  • Explain how individuals are impacted by change, different ways they may respond to change situations and how learning processes help them adapt.
  • Contribute to development of strategies to help individuals through change, increasing motivation for change and overcoming resistance in order to achieve desired outcomes.

    An amazing instructor who explained the content very clearly and at a very good pace. This was a good balance and approach to learning in a three day intensive period. I found the worked examples very practical and very relatable to the Defence industry sector I work in.
