Who should attend this Managing Benefits Training Course?

This Managing Benefits™ Foundation and Practitioner training course are designed for those who wish to administer successful business change, namely, Change Managers, Change Management Professionals, Change Leaders, Change Appraisers, Change Initiators, Change Evaluators, Change Implementers, Change Enablers, and Change Support Staff. 

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for this combined training course.

Managing Benefits Foundation and Practitioner Course Overview

Managing Benefits™ Foundation and Practitioner is a combined training course, which covers both Foundation and Practitioner content. The first part of this course will focus on the Foundation section, which provides delegates with a fundamental understanding of Managing Benefits principles, approaches, roles, responsibilities, and procedures. The Managing Benefits guidance that delegates will work with will allow them to acknowledge current programme, project, and portfolio management policies, and will enable them to comprehend benefits management so that the wider organisation goals are considered. Delegates will need to take a Foundation examination at the end of the Foundation teaching section.

The second part of this integrated training course will concentrate on the Practitioner material. The Practitioner segment will confirm whether or not the delegate possesses sufficient knowledge of Managing Benefits to adopt and apply it to real scenarios. Throughout this section of the course, delegates will have to determine solutions to example problems that may arise in the workplace. Roles and responsibilities will also be explored, as in realistic terms, delegates will need to identify what tasks need to be completed by what member of staff, hence the Practitioner course allows them to practice this. Delegates will also need to take a Practitioner exam in order to gain the overall certification.
