The Effective Change Manager’s Handbook Essential Guidance to the Change Management
The change management profession is no longer in its infancy. Readily identifiable in organisations and in business literature it is no longer reliant on parent disciplines such as organisational development or project management. Change management is itself in a state of change and growth – the number of jobs is increasing and organisations are actively seeking to build their change management capability.
The Effective Change Manager’s Handbook, the official guide to the CMI Body of Knowledge, is explicitly designed to help practitioners, employers and academics define and practice change management successfully and to develop change management maturity within their organization. A single-volume learning resource covering the range of underpinning knowledge required, it includes chapters from esteemed and established thought leaders on topics ranging from benefits management, stakeholder strategy, facilitation, change readiness, project management and education and learning support. Covering the whole process from planning to implementation, it offers practical tools, techniques and models to effectively support any change initiative.
