Course Overview and Agenda

The term ‘change management’ often evokes the hope that one can manage or influence the type or rate of change. The true purpose of a Change Management Plan details processes to respond and adapt to changing conditions in the business environment and the project environment. In either, there are two broad categories of change:
⦁ change forced by outside events such updated laws and regulations
⦁ change we choose such as process improvement
Change disrupts established routines and people have to adapt to the ‘new’ situation. In this course participants will learn strategies and methods specific to each project development approach to identify the need for change as well as strategies to implement change, including Prosci’s ADKAR model. While project managers are immediately affected by changes in the project environment, they must also cultivate an awareness of the interaction of change between the external business environment and the project environment. Participants will engage in case studies and apply the course content to their own work.
