Professional Certificate in Strategic Change Management
25th - 29th September 2017, London, UK
Today’s leaders are constantly being challenged to evolve their organisations or departments if they are to survive and prosper. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the public sector where, under pressure to demonstrate value for money and maximum efficiency, organisations are required to do more with less. Forced to modernise, leaders are increasingly looking to change programmes to streamline processes and modernise working practices.
Participants on this course will explore two different but equally important elements of the change process. Firstly it will help participants pinpoint specifically where change is necessary for their organisations and what the change process is expected to achieve. This information can then be used to develop a coherent strategy for change that includes clear and realistic goals to achieve these objectives.
Secondly, this course will address the most commonly cited reason for unsuccessful change efforts: a failure to secure the support of the workforce. Participants will learn how to construct a logical argument to explain the reasons for change, engage staff in the process and identify ‘change agents’ that people can turn to for support and guidance throughout the change process.
This course will also include a ‘change surgery’ which will focus on participants’ own efforts to instigate change in their organisations, making use of the Chair and fellow delegates’ experiences to develop an implementation plan to instigate upon their return to their workplace.
Experts in the field will lead this training through interactive workshops, lectures and best practice case studies, fostering innovation, creative learning and networking amongst peers.
Upon completion of this week-long course and subsequent successful completion of CMI written tasks, the successful candidate will be awarded a Level 7 CMI certificate in Management & Leadership showing the CMI units achieved. The CMI is the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. The professional qualifications offered by the Institute are internationally recognised and sought after.
