About CHAMPS2® Training

CHAMPS was originally created by Birmingham City Council, in 2006, to guarantee successful results in the Council’s £2 billion transformation project. Birmingham City Council had to transform to meet the modernising government agenda, which would affect council operation, service delivery, personnel, along with the residents of Birmingham. This was a colossal undertaking and ran enormous risks of over spending and damaging essential Council services. However, implementation of the CHAMPS2® method deemed the transformation hugely successful and the method has therefore been made available to organisations who wish to undergo business change.

 

CHAMPS2® is unique as it is broad and involves the whole enterprise change journey. Furthermore, it can be adapted to a wide variety of industries and is fully flexible and adaptable. There are 8 major phases of CHAMPS2®, beginning with Phase 0 and ending with Phase 7. This methodological staging provides a structural approach to follow and begins with the strategic need and end with the strategic outcome. The 8 phases are: transformation; visioning; shaping and planning; design; service creation and realisation; proving and transition; stabilisation; and benefits realisation.

 

CHAMPS2® certifications are aimed at change managers or aspiring change managers and teams members involved in transformation. It may also be beneficial change leaders, change agents, change support personnel, and change implementers. Organisations may wish to implement the CHAMPS2® change method if they aspire to maintain the requirements of their customers alongside maintaining organisational efficiency targets.
