Change comes about in various forms within organisations due to many factors including projects, team restructuring, business analysis identifying different ways of working, company mergers, and outsourcing. No matter how big or small, they all need to be facilitated with Change Management to ensure a successful result.

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

Upon completion of this combined qualification students will have the knowledge and understanding necessary to contribute constructively to teams specifying, developing, implementing and sustaining change initiatives.

The qualification is based upon the Change Management Institute’s (CMI) Change Management Body of Knowledge (CMBoK) “The Effective Change Manager”. The book provided as part of courseware is “The Effective Change Manager’s Handbook”.
