Change is an inevitable part of Project life

And, as a Project Manager, you'll soon be called upon to help lead it.

But, we often fear change. This leads to resistance.
So, managing and leading change is a challenging role. It will take you outside of your comfort zone and beyond your existing management and supervision tool-set.

But change is predictable
You can anticipate how people will respond, and what you need to do to engage them positively. You can plan, prepare, and handle the resistance that will certainly come.

To do that, you need practical tools and models

And this course will give you them.

More than that, you'll learn:

  • how the need for change arises,
  • how to communicate it, and
  • the way to lead people through it.

Here are the main topics you'll cover:

  • The Cycle of Change
  • Barriers to Change
  • The first reason why people resist change
  • Tools for change leaders
  • Stakeholder analysis
  • How people respond to change: the change curve
  • The impact of change on operational performance: the Satir Curve
  • The three phases of a change program: the Lewin Model
  • The Onion Model of resistance to change
  • How to win over resisters

Ongoing Project: Change Management Case Study

Throughout the course, you will have short exercises to do, that use the skills we'll cover. They are based on a real organizational change project. Other students and your tutor will support you, endorse your successes, and help you with your questions.

Prior Experience
The only prior experience you need is working life. But, if you have management or project management experience, you'll find it even easier!
