Change Management

Foundation to Practitioner

Change Management Overview

One of the challenges facing organisations today is how to modify the business through regular change initiatives, with minimum disruption and maximum gain. Research suggests that 70% of projects fail to secure their anticipated benefits because organisations install new systems, processes or practices, but fail to implement the change fully – people are not sufficiently equipped for or committed to, the new ways of working to sustain them. This demonstrates an obvious need for professionals to supplement traditional project and business management skills with skills in change leadership.

It was absolutely marvellous training with Jeralyn R from PM-Partners for the Change Management Foundation and Practitioner courses. The training sessions were meticulously divided into theory and practical workshops....lots of workshop. This helped in understanding everything in the real-world purposeful sense! The CM Foundation course was also super engaging and was delivered extremely well by Barbara L. Guidance, methods, quick tips, workshops and support... the trainers did everything to ensure the candidates get value out of this! I am so glad I completed this course and the certification. Totally satisfied!!
