Change is inevitable in any business, hence this APMG accredited training course helps prepare organisations for change, to ensure the impact is as positive as possible. Change Management is about organisation, whereby provisions adopted are suitable for all, and individuals are prepared to address issues that may arise as a result of change.
Change is a necessary component of business, as it is required in order for progression to be achieved. Change can often be met with resistance and displeasure due to fear that the impact of change will be negative, and the assumption that the various preparations required will not be in place. Hence this Change Management training course aims to accurately prepare employees of all levels and departments for change. If employees are effectively prepared for change, their attitude towards it becomes more welcoming and they work harder to implement it correctly. The role of people in change is vital, because they are the ones who are given the task of achieving the change goal.
Thus strong communication skills are imperative, to ensure doubtful employees are interacted with appropriately. Approaching change in this way is fundamental as it increases the chances of a smooth transition, heightens morale in the workplace, which consequently boosts productivity and the quality of services or products as employees are actually interested in what the change may offer. Essentially, Change Management is all about teaching people to embrace change rather than fear it.
It is important to handle change in three stages: before, during, and following its implementation, in order to ensure the change has been executed correctly and fits its purpose. Change Management training is valuable because companies are continuously modifying themselves to meet ever-changing demands and requirements, against rising competitors who are doing the same. Each day new projects are introduced to improve performance and raise profits, so change is vital in maintaining success. As a result, businesses must be organised for all possibilities, and this Change Management training course provides individuals with the necessary skills to initiate and oversee change.
The Knowledge Academy bases Change Management course content on the book ‘Making Sense of Change Management, 3rd edition’.
Change Management training is split into two levels: Foundation and Practitioner. The Knowledge Academy offers these training courses separately but also offers an option whereby the Change Management Foundation and Practitioner programs are combined to constitute one training course. This is ideal for delegates who wish to achieve the Change Management certifications together. This combined training course lasts five days in total.
The first three days will be spent focusing on the Foundation level content which is centred around obtaining sufficient Change Management knowledge to pass the examination which takes place on the third day. The remaining two days will be spent concentrating on the Practitioner level, with the exam taking place on the final day of the course. Delegates will learn how to practically apply their awareness of Change Management principles to a real situation. Furthermore, training will cover everything that is needed to be successful in the Practitioner examination which delegates will complete on the final day of the Change Management training course.
Both courses are taught in a classroom format, complemented by more practical exercises which enable delegates to practice applying their knowledge to actual scenarios.
The Change Management Foundation training course is three days long. This training level brings to light new approaches to managing change. By the end of this Foundation training course, delegates will be able to create a change plan that fits into the specific requirements of their business.
Four key areas will be examined:
The Change Management Practitioner training course lasts for two days. This course expands on knowledge acquired at the Foundation level. It focuses more on the practical implementation of change to business frameworks, and how this can be sustained.
Several key areas will be examined:
The Knowledge Academy provides a Change Management Re-Registration course for those who need to renew their Practitioner status. The Practitioner certification expires every 3-5 years, so this course is designed for those who need to revisit the Change Management Practitioner content. The format of the training course is exactly same as the normal Practitioner, however, the Re-Registration course contains the most up-to-date content.
We also offer a Managing Change for Senior Managers training course, which teaches delegates how to administer change within their organisation, in order to extract positive change outcomes. Delegates will perceive changes in a certain way so that benefits are accomplished. This is desirable to avoid organisation deterioration that can occur as a result of change. Delegates will acquire an understanding of others’ response to change so that they can make the most effective change-related decisions.
Our one day Managing Organisational Change Effectively training course provides delegates with the essential skills and tools to implement successful change within their workplace. A large portion of this course will focus on the people aspect of change, thus attendees will become familiar with fundamental communication techniques and ways to address inevitable resistance. Further topics of study include the impact of change, required leader behaviour, setting goals, and analysing change implementation.
Change Management is a people-focused approach, thus the individual plays an extremely important role. Much emphasis is placed on assisting people to change how they perform their job role, as the developments Change Management enable are very much based on how successfully job roles are carried out. Essentially, companies could not benefit from Change Management without the hard work of individuals. Individuals learn how to adopt new approaches to their job role, and develop existing elements, resulting in enhanced singular performance.
A key component of Change Management is guiding individuals to the point where they accept change as the norm. Resistance to change is dramatically reduced, as individuals feel prepared to encounter any form of change with a positive mindset. Individuals focus on the end goal of a change project which they are motivated and excited to achieve. This new attitude means individuals are open to concepts that they once feared.
Further benefits of Change Management for individuals include:
Companies are confronted with complex multifunctional changes on a daily basis. Change is no longer a long-term phenomenon, so businesses no longer have the time to deal with failed change implementation. A notable benefit of Change Management for businesses is the return on investment. This is because the same approach and structure to change is adopted consistently so companies save time creating a new change framework for each situation, which allows more opportunity for profit to be made. Also, the job roles of employees are defined so all are clear about what they need to achieve. Confusion is reduced, and those with the appropriate skills are placed in a role where their expertise is utilised, hence business productivity is greatly improved.
As well as this, often employees do not welcome change with open arms as they are concerned about how it will impact them. Change Management teaches delegates the communication skills to effectively persuade employees that they will be prepared for change, and that change is for the best. So, overall, the main benefits of Change Management for businesses focus on saving time and utilising and building a positive employee attitude towards change. The results of these are profitable.
Further benefits of Change Management for businesses and employers include:
