Online Format

These online sessions will be more like an in-person class than a webinar. We’ll share experiences, discuss challenges, and do small group activities within the online learning platform. You’ll also be given time to complete the templates to apply the material to your own situation, and then share your templates with the class. This is not a listen-while-I-check-my-email online class. It’s a participate-and-get-things-done online class. While sessions will be recorded, to maximize the value of the course, it is important for you to attend live.

To access the online platform, you’ll need the Zoom app on a computer or laptop. You’ll also need Microsoft PowerPoint to complete and share the templates. Join with a camera and microphone for maximum participation.

Who Should Attend?

The methodology taught in this course was developed for people working within organizations who are responsible for implementing change without having much authority. While these change practitioners go by many titles, they have one thing in common: in order to achieve the desired results, other people in the organization will need to change the way they work.

You will benefit from attending this course if:

  • boulderuphillYou are planning a project, and want to figure out how to get people to adopt the new way of doing things.

  • You want to build the change capability of your organization and seek practical tools.
  • You’re a new or experienced change practitioner looking to expand your toolkit, increase your influence, and complete the training requirement for the Association of Change Management Professionals’ (ACMP®) Certified Change Management Practitioner (CCMP™) accreditation.
