Today's organizations must integrate and align people, processes, structures, culture, and strategy in order to successfully transition individuals and groups from a current state to a desired future state, such that the desired outcomes and business objectives are achieved. Unfortunately, many managers still view their primary responsibility as managing specific business functions (resources, time, scope, budgets, etc.) and have a difficult time understanding and properly integrating organizational change management activities through successful strategic execution.

This course focuses on change management in the areas of organizational development and human resource management combined with standardized portfolio, program, and project management practices (A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge [PMBOK Guide]Fifth Edition, 2013, Project Management Institute, Inc.). All key concepts necessary to manage strategic and tactical changes are covered through a mix of inspiring lectures and exercises.

Organizational change directly affects everyone from the entry-level employee to senior management; therefore, everyone must learn how to handle changes to the organization. Managers and executives are charged with the additional responsibility for making change happen in and through the different levels of strategic execution.

PMBOK and PMI are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.

This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.

Great company -- easy to sign up and very organized. Loved my teacher and class overall.

Great and very intuitive. Better than the traditional hit the wrong button/lose points.

Thank you for training on AWS development. Course was good and encouraging but labs need to be improved and provide more information and ask students to more work than provide solutions.

Good Course. We covered a lot of material in a short amount of time. This course had useful labs that built upon each other.
