Introduction to APMG® Change Management Certifications

Change Management is the set of actions we take within an organization to ensure that those who are impacted successfully adopt change. The focus of change management is on people and, therefore, good change management requires implementing a wide range of interpersonal skills such as communication, the ability to influence or persuade, generating motivation and resilience, and fostering critical attitudes, among many others. In addition, a Change Manager must be able to correctly prioritize actions based on their ability to maintain the momentum of change.

Through APMG®, we offer two Change Management certifications: one on the practice of Change Management and another more specific one for Agile Change Management. For Change Agents or others who are responsible for leading and/or implementing change, APMG® considers the Change Management certifications to be primary and the Agile Change Agent certification to be secondary.

Netmind is accredited through APMG to deliver the following certification training.

APMG® Change Management Certifications

APMG® Change Management

APMG® partnered with the Change Management Institute® (CMI) to create the first professional certification scheme for Change Managers, based on the CMBoK® (Change Management Body of Knowledge) – the Change Management Foundation and Change Management Practitioner certifications.

The CMBoK is a collection of best practices in change management and aims to become the standard resource for the professionalization of change managers, as well as a standard tool for all organizations who want to improve their change management capabilities. Its 13 competencies detail the theoretical knowledge and practical experience that professionals responsible for leading and managing change should possess. The CMBoK is not a methodology; it is a body of knowledge that incorporates the principles and theories on the management of change. It also incorporates useful business management practices to make change management efficient across organizations.
