    Change Management Foundation

    Projects are driven by change, and this change often has a high amount of risk – much like sailing on the open sea. Think of Change Management as the captain of a ship sailing toward a new land: ensuring everything stays on track, and that the crew is safely on board & supported in the midst of occasionally alarming circumstances.

    Change management is a systematic approach to an organisation’s transition or transformation goals, processes, or technologies. It highlights how the advantages of a change outweigh the challenges of implementing it – and that results in more buy-in. 

    The Change Management Foundation is for anyone interested in understanding the principles of achieving successful organisational change as you will learn specific techniques to ensure a smooth transition during change initiatives while providing full support to the business and its people.

    Once completing your Change Management Foundation, you will benefit from progressing to the Change Management Practitioner to validate your skills and enhance your credibility as a Change Professional.

    What You Will Learn

    You will be able to recall, recognise, and showcase a clear understanding of the theories, concepts, models, and approaches in Change Management, including terms used, process sequences, and roles involved.

      Change & the Individual

      The Change Management Context: two models of individual change will be examined in this subsection – the Elisabeth Kübler-Ross change curve and Bridge’s stages of transition. We will cover how individuals can be motivated in different ways, education and learning support for individuals, as well as different personality types and their implications for change.

      Change & the Organisation

      The aim of this syllabus area is to show how organisations can be classified and how ways of working are developed. There are also insights on how to apply change tactics to different scenarios and the various individuals within the organisation that are required to make change a success.

      Stakeholder Strategy & Communications

      Stakeholder engagement is pivotal to the whole process of effective change. The ability to engage with people, and to engage with them often, is correlated with more effective change. People engagement is the ‘pull’ competence through which much else is contextualised and framed in change management leadership.

      Change Management Practices

      Change Management Practices involve understanding the potential impact of changes and ensuring that an organisation is prepared and ready to manage those changes effectively. This includes assessing the readiness of employees and stakeholders, as well as developing strategies for communicating and implementing changes in a way that minimises disruption and maximises benefits.
