Certified Local Change Agent

You are here

During this program you will examine various change management techniques and explore change management models that could be effectively implemented in your organization. The structured approach helps you understand how you deal with change as an individual, as a member of a team or organization, and as a leader. The program design explores the impact that change has on these four major areas:

  • Change and the Individual
  • Change and the Organization
  • Communications and Stakeholder Engagement
  • Change Management Practice

This course also prepares you for the APMG Certified Local Change Agent exam. Given that a primary course goal is to achieve the Change Agent Certification, the course textbook will be provided in advance of the workshop for participants to study. In addition, an evening practice exam will be provided. Exam is
taken at the end of the course.
