    All projects enable change in organizations, and this unique course bundle offers the ‘best of both’ for those delivering projects and effecting organizational change, whether large or small. As both courses are fully accredited you can be assured that they cover the relevant syllabus and are of very high quality.

    A structured approach to managing projects is provided by PRINCE2®. It is recognised globally as a best practice approach, and provides step-by-step guidance through 7 processes. PRINCE2® also provides focus through principles, which are guiding obligations, and detailed subject by subject guidance through a number of themes. PRINCE2® has been established for many years and this course is fully accredited by PeopleCert / Axelos.

    However, PRINCE2® doesn’t cover the ‘people side’ of change, which is where the Change Management course comes in. Often individuals are resistant to change, and this needs to be understood and planned for. This qualification is fully accredited by the APMG, and was developed in conjunction with the Change Management Institute. Recognition of the importance of change management is increasing globally and evident in the number of job opportunities that require knowledge in this area.

    Having knowledge of both of these subjects is a very powerful combination, and will help you in the following ways:

    • Gain / retain employment as these lead to highly respected qualifications
    • Increase the likelihood of your projects succeeding
    • Understand and avoid the common reasons for project failure
    • Understand how to structure a project management team, ensuring all relevant stakeholders are catered for with accountability assigned
    • Ensure that project requirements (including quality standard) are properly documented
    • Create good project business cases and use them for decision making
    • Understand the difference between project risks and issues/changes, and how to handle them appropriately
    • Understand how individuals react to change, and how change impacts organisations
    • Unlock resistance to change to increase the likelihood of successful
    • Enable / facilitate teams to effectively deal with and embrace change
    • Create strategies for communicating and implementing change initiatives
    • Understand what should go into a Change Plan
    • Create good project business cases and use them for decision making
    • Create vision statements that promote buy-in to a change initiatives
    • Apply techniques for identifying and understanding different stakeholders involved in a change

    The courses are presented by our lead trainer (rather than an actor) to ensure the best possible experience for our learners. Although these are eLearning courses they still cater for all learning styles.

    The syllabus for PRINCE2® covers the theory and practice and is divided into these topics:

    • 7 Principles (guiding obligations)
    • 7 Themes (Business Case, Organization, Progress, Plans, Risk, Change, Quality)
    • 7 Processes (Starting Up a Project, Initiating a Project, Controlling a Stage, Managing Product Delivery, Managing Stage Boundaries, Directing a Project and Closing a Project)

    The syllabus for Change Management covers the theory and practice and is divided into these 4 topics:

    • Change and the Individual
    • Change and the Organisation
    • Communication and Stakeholder Engagement
    • Change Practice

    These courses have been designed for use with or without the official texts (Managing Projects with PRINCE2 / Effective Change Managers Handbook). You may purchase these texts separately from our shop, and the time frame for completing these courses does not include reading them.
