About the course

The APMG International Change Management course has been developed by APMG in partnership with the Change Management Institute to help organisations and their staff successfully manage the impact of change.

The course content is based upon the 13 ‘knowledge areas’ of the Change Management Institute’s Change Management Body of Knowledge as reflected in The Effective Change Manager’s Handbook.

It is designed to help you understand effective leadership and management throughout change activities aligned to supporting individuals, teams and organisations, specifically focusing on change management practices including communications and stakeholder management.

Our highly regarded Practitioner and Integrated courses are structured so that the Practitioner exam is taken in the classroom directly after the training element (as per Foundation but at the end of the week). We prefer this approach to the post course online exam booking system as it ensures that the course content is fresh in the mind and enables delegates to leave having completed both the course and examination.

*BMC are proud to have maintained a 100% pass rate on our public schedule courses at both Foundation and Practitioner levels for this course over the last two years! (2017/2018)*

Benefits – individual?

Dealing with change and especially individuals’ reactions to it can be fraught with difficulty. This course allows you to understand the human side of change, learning how people will react, managing the reactions of change and ultimately be able to see change through a successful business transformation, (i.e. help your employees/colleagues through the Change Curve).

Benefits – organisation?

Change is an inevitable consequence of modern-day organisational life. It may be that there has been a change of management which has new approaches, a change of employment, a new project to be undertaken or perhaps changes in the economic or legal environments in which your organisation operates.

Having well informed team members who can contribute positively on an individual and corporate level is vital. It helps mitigate the risk of failure and therefore avoid operational delays in your organisation, whilst ensuring customer demands continue to be met and building a sustainable business model.
