A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the Change Management approaches and techniques to a real change initiative; however, s/he may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. His/her individual Change Management expertise, complexity of the change initiative and the support provided for the use of Change Management approaches in their work environment will all be factors that impact what the Practitioner can achieve.
This course will further develop some of the knowledge of Change Management learned during the Foundation certification.
You will consider what learning is required and how best to design and deliver it. Then the course will provide an understanding of how Change Management fits into the project management environment.
A major challenge with change is making it stick. The course will show how to sustain change by understanding the levers for change, models of adoption, and reinforcing systems.
This course also prepares you for the APMG Change Management Practitioner exam. Given that a primary course goal is to achieve the Practitioner Certification, daily homework assignments and practice exams will be provided. The Practitioner-level exam is taken at the end of the second day of the Traditional Classroom course. Virtual Classroom and On-Demand participants must make separate arrangements to schedule their exam following course completion (See “Important Note for Virtual and On-Demand Participants”).
