Change Management

Dealing with change and more importantly, the impact of change is a high priority for all organisations. It is said that change is the only constant in business, and perfecting the art of change management can be a challenge in any organisation. Being able to develop and implement effective change initiatives is paramount to ensuring ongoing business success.

The Change Management Certification has been developed by APMG in partnership with the Change Management Institute (CMI), an independent, global professional association of change managers. Together they have developed a professional ‘body of knowledge’ for the discipline of change management. This body of knowledge now provides an independent benchmark for the professional knowledge expected of an effective change manager.

The Change Management certification is fully aligned with the change management body of knowledge. The syllabus samples a wide range of knowledge regarding the theory and practice of change management including:

  • change and the individual;
  • change and the organization;
  • communication and stakeholder engagement and;
  • change practice.

Better Business Cases

Better Business Cases is a systematic and objective approach to all stages of the business case development process.

The Better Business Cases guidance is based on the Five Case Model, the UK government’s best practice approach to planning spending proposals and enabling effective business decisions. This provides a step by step guide to developing a business case, by:

  • Establishing a clear justification for intervention – a case for change;
  • Setting clear objectives – what you want to achieve from the investment;
  • Considering a wide range of potential solutions – ensuring an optimal balance of benefits, cost and risk;
  • Putting the arrangements in place to successfully deliver the proposal.

Better Business Cases also provides an Options Framework, that can be used to generate and assess a wide range of options for projects and programmes.
