Change Management is all of the actions we take to control how we move from one state to another. These actions involve communications skills; influencing and persuading skills; as well as the ability to break the change into al the activities that need to happen to move a team and/or organisations beyond its current realities.

Change Management is different to project management in as follows:

  • Project Management is about creating a deliverable (something new one updated), and making sure it is delivered on time; on budget and to the right level of quality;
  • Change Management is about persuading others to use what has been created, and embedding the use of the deliverable into the way people work

All leaders are involved in change – leading change; identifying the need for change; or making change happen. Change is not a specialist activity – as leaders we are all expected to have the skills to do our job and to improve our job by identifying changes that bring greater efficiencies; increased accuracy and quality; improved customer and supplier relations; or increased revenue.

Change happens all the time, but to ensure that the right change happens needs skills and understanding on how change should be planned, managed and controlled.

Delegates will gain practical understanding of the change management cycle and importance of managing changing in the workplace, and how to apply basic change management and leadership techniques in order to drive and manage change within the workplace and within their direct teams.
