Dealing with change and more importantly, the impact of change is a high priority for all organisations. The Change Management Certification has been developed by APMG in partnership with the Change Management Institute (CMI), an independent, global professional association of change managers. Together they have developed a professional ‘body of knowledge’ for the discipline of change management. This body of knowledge now provides an independent benchmark for the professional knowledge expected of an effective change manager. APMG’s refreshed Change Management certification is fully aligned with the change management body of knowledge.
