A Quick Glance

Effective Change Management is a tool that all organisations require, regardless of their size, if they wish to continue to grow and progress. One change managment strategy cannot fit all circumstances of change therefore the Change Management certification, from APMG in partnership with CMI, is an effective strategy that focuses on the impact of change and how to deal with change. 

Change management strategies define the approach needed to manage change in any given situation or initiative. We at Pentagon Training provide delegates to build on and upgrade their skills with the Change Management courses, by providing them with the relevant knowledge. The delegates get to know the basics of Change Management in the Foundation course. Those who have already completed this certification but wish to maintain registration status, can do so with the Re-registration course.

  • Requestor – Who raised the change?
  • Reason – What is the reason for the change?
  • Relationship – What is the relationship between this change and other requested change?
  • Responsible – Who is responsible for the build, test and implementation of the change?
  • Resources – What resources are required to deliver the change?
