Change Management Foundation: Key Elements & Benefits

Updated: Aug 4, 2021

Change Management

Change is a constant in today’s dynamic and hyper-competitive business world.

Business leaders and line managers MUST be equipped with the right skills and knowledge to effectively lead transformational change.

What is often ignored or forgotten when leading a change initiative is the people and cultural side of change, resulting in 70% of change initiatives failing (according to the Kotter Institute). Don’t be on the wrong side of that statistic!

There are two major factors that contribute to change not being successfully implemented. The first is that the change process is not managed effectively, and the second is because people impacted by the change are not guided effectively.

Change Management is associated with the effects and management of change; this is a high priority for all organisations, as managing change is important to facilitate successful project implementation.

The purpose of the Change Management Foundation certification is to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of Change Management to work as an informal member of a team working on an organizational change initiative. The Foundation certification is also a pre-requisite for the APMG Practitioner certification. 

This qualification is based on the theory and application of change for the individual, change for the organisation, communication and stakeholder engagement and change management best practice.
