Organization Change Management Foundation

Hawtrey Organization Change Management Foundation is a 3-day class.

Purpose of the Foundation Qualification

The purpose of the Foundation qualification is to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of Change Management to work as an informed member of a team working on an organizational change initiative. The Foundation qualification is also a prerequisite for the Practitioner qualification.

This qualification is aimed at individuals who are involved in change initiatives who require a working knowledge of the key principles of change management, who need to know the terminology used and some of the theory behind the practice. It is also the introduction to the higher-level Practitioner qualification and therefore includes all those who are the target audience for that qualification.
