Module Objectives & Overview

This change management training course will address the systems and process aspects of change – taking a project management viewpoint of the whole endeavour.

Major themes covered will include the role played by the currently embedded culture and the level of employee engagement experienced with partnership-type forums.

This will speak to the various teamworking and collaboration supports that need to be energised to facilitate implementation of the structural aspects of change management – drawing on the best ideas available to come up with the very best local solutions.

We will spotlight the need to approach the change management initiative, with a project management mindset, involving a strong appreciation for planning, monitoring and reviewing progress – coupled with risk management regimens to mitigate the inevitable setbacks that will be encountered.

In this way, participants in this change management training course will be provided with an integrated roadmap that sets out the change management journey in a very logical and planned fashion – that not only minimises surprises but also builds credibility with colleagues & other stakeholders.
