Project-Driven Change Management   

Successful completion fulfills 15 Professional Development Units toward SPSCC certificate completion and can be submitted to PMI subject to their audit process.

This two-day course addresses project-driven change management as it relates to both projects and programs. The course identifies the need for project managers to focus on the humanistic, programmatic and organizational implications of change driven by projects and the programs they support and a critical project success factor. Students will discuss the need for stakeholder involvement in all elements of a project’s initiation, planning, execution and close phases. Through the use of case studies and group projects, students will address the need for comprehensive transition planning to the organization and the programs to which project managers hand off their project solutions. Specific emphasis is placed on John Kotter’s 8-step Change Process and how it supports effective change management.
