Organisational Change Management Certification – Foundation
Dealing with change and, more importantly, the impact of change is a high priority for all organisations.
This Foundationcourse on Organisational Change Management is based on the Change Management Body of Knowledge as defined by the Change Management Institute (CMI), an independent, global professional association of change managers. This body of knowledge provides an independent benchmark for the professional knowledge expected of an effective change manager.
The course comprehensively covers both the theory and the practice of change management including:
Accredited by APMG, the course is structured in two modules: a stand-alone Foundation Level (3 days) and a follow-on Practitioner Level (2 days). These can be taken individually or combined. Choose the option that best meets your needs. If you are interested in going to Practitioner level we recommend taking both modules in the one sitting if possible.

Foundation Level Certification
The purpose of the Foundation certification is to measure whether you have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the Change Management Text and Handbook to act as an informed member of a change management team during a period of change within part or all of your organisation. The Foundation certification is also a pre-requisite for the Practitioner certification.
Change Management – APMG/CMI vs PROSCI
One of the most frequent questions we get concerns the differences between PROCSI and APMG/CMI certifications.
ALC’s Change Management training comes from APMG and CMI (the Change Management Institute) which are both based in UK. PROSCI is US-based. The two approaches are not really competitors. Rather, they are complementary. They approach the same subject but from a different perspective. In an ideal world people would do both. A similar situation exists with Business Analysis between IIBA in USA and BCS in UK.
ALC recommends the APMG/CMI approach as a more suitable and effective starting point from an organisational perspective, particularly if you have a group of people to be trained.
For a comprehensive assessment of the two approaches we recommend this paper: Change management certification courses from APMG and Prosci®. Which one is right for you?
