Course Description: Recognizing the importance of change management discipline in successful project execution, Project Management Institute (PMI) developed a practical guide for managing change initiatives in organizations. However, to successfully manage the increasingly complex changes in their organizations, project managers may need to go a few steps further and develop a clear understanding of the interrelationship between several frameworks, including organizational change management, benefits realization management, and sustainability. The integration of these concepts into project managers’ daily work necessitates absconding a traditional way of conceptualizing projects and adopting a more holistic and systems approach to project planning, execution, and the transitioning of deliverables into business operations.

Furthermore, the reality of organizations’ cultural and political environments may leave project managers unprepared to skillfully manage “the people side” of change - a critical element needed for the effective utilization of project benefits. Therefore, it is critical to equip project managers with skills to effectively lead their teams through change initiatives focusing on delivering sustained project benefits.

During this interactive two-day workshops, attendees will learn

  • Ways to use a systemic thinking approach in conceptualizing, aligning, and managing project-based change initiatives;
  • A structured Change Management framework;
  • Elements of sustainable change management practices;
  • Strategies for integrating project and change management frameworks;
  • How to monitor and measure benefits management at a project level;
  • Scientifically-based strategies for managing people through change.


Performance-Based Course Objective: Upon completion of this course,attendees will be able to(a)effectively utilize a structured change management framework to carry out organizational change initiatives through projects; (b) apply systems thinking to access change complexity and organizational readiness for change; (c) understand the critical role project managers play in helping organizations manage and sustain benefits to achieve critical strategic goals; and (d) use behavioral and neuroscience to effectively respond to sources of resistance and effectively manage people through change.
