The ability to handle change is the new criteria for leadership success. Change is an inevitable reality for all modern-day businesses and as companies continue to struggle with too many competing priorities and a lack of overall planning, change management is becoming increasingly important. This program combines two certification courses (and two exams), the Change Management Foundation™ and the Change Management Practitioner™, into one 5- day learning development event. It provides practical knowledge on Change Management techniques and ultimately prepares you to write the APMG International Change Management Foundation™ and Change Management Practitioner™ certification exams which are taken on the third and fifth day respectively.
