Course types and class sizes

2. A bespoke course – tailored for small company teams who are looking to develop an internal change capability (maximum class size – 16 delegates)

  • Individual – This course will equip you with the principles and practice required to manage change successfully. The examples and tools that you consider during this course can be used to address the various types of business change you face in the future. You will be able to understand, assess, manage and embed change in a style that reflects your professional style and draws on the best practice embodied in the Change Management Institute’s Body of Knowledge and Competency Framework. In addition to this you will become an accredited change professional in possession of a qualification that is recognised internationally.
  • Organisation – Having people who are expert in the inter-disciplinary practice of change management is increasingly regarded as a necessity for agile organisations. Organisations with staff who have successfully completed this course can be confident that they have individuals capable of making change a positive experience and not just something to survive.

Thanks to extensive and ongoing first-hand experience, our approach to change has been tested in change initiatives across a number of sectors. Our approach has evolved over time to take into consideration differing leadership frameworks, varying organisational cultures and the speed it takes different businesses to embed change.

We are passionate about engagement and building the right environment where people feel confident that they can contribute and that their voice will be heard and respected.

Our critical component is inspiration – both the willingness to be inspired by great change (wherever it comes from) and to inspire a change-positive approach in our clients. Through a series of insights into how humans have created positive changes in a wide range of fields, we will stimulate your creative thinking, breaking down preconceived and deep-rooted assumptions about what can and cannot be done.

A place on one of our open courses is priced at £1450 plus VAT. Bespoke courses vary in price depending on the location and number of delegates and are generally arranged on a group price.
