Change Management Foundation

Course Summary

This course focuses on the practical aspects of effective Change Management as it relates to change and the individual, change and the organization, communications and stakeholder engagement and Change Management practice. This is an intense course that involves both pre-course and evening study during the course. The course is entirely complementary to formal portfolio, programme and project management approaches (such as MOP®, MSP®, and PRINCE2®) but knowledge of these approaches is not a pre-requisite for attendance.


The Foundation exam is taken near the end of the last day, after all of the Change Management elements have been sufficiently covered.

Pre-course reading

Delegates should spend approximately 4-6 hours studying the pre-course material to be well prepared for the course.


This is the 3 day Foundation course and is a mixture of input and practical sessions teaching to the APM Group 'Foundation-level' syllabus, delivered by an APMG approved trainer with practical experience of Change Management. The course incorporates the APM Group Foundation exam, but includes additional focus on the application of the method using application-level tasks in order to add value and help delegates better understand how to apply the concepts of Change Management, as well as be better prepared if they ever choose to go on to take the Practitioner-level exam in the future.


Through study of selected sections of The Effective Change Manager's Handbook the course provides a practical and informative pathway of understanding through the maze of principles, theories and the practice of Change Management. It gives a solid platform for clear best practice thinking and the application of a range of proven Change Management tools and techniques for achieving successful change.
