IMPORTANT NOTICE: This program is traditionally a face-to-face classroom training program, but the Spring 2021 Semester section will be held online as we prioritize distance learning in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Never have businesses faced such drastic change and uncertainty as seen during the COVID-19 pandemic. In a matter of just a few months, entire industries have been forced to implement major change initiatives to their people, processes, and tools in order to stay relevant in an ever-changing business climate.
The job of implementing these major change initiatives inevitably falls to project managers, who are now being looked at as organizational change agents more critical to business success than ever before. Are you prepared to handle so much responsibility in such a foreign environment?
In Project Management for Business Change, you’ll learn a defined process for consciously and predictably implementing major change initiatives so you can guide your company with confidence to their desired outcomes. A focus will be given to Emotional Intelligence and the social component of change as projects of change must be managed, and ultimately accepted, by individuals and teams in order to be effective.
In this workshop, students will follow best practices of designing and executing a sample project for major change. Emphasis will be placed on the project manager’s use of change management tools, and how they fit into the project management lifecycle.
All course resources and materials will be provided.
