Change Management Certificate

Course Info

Change is a key part of talent development (TD). Every learning initiative requires some level of organizational change regardless of whether it is a formal change project. But change isn’t easy, and most change initiatives fail. The question is why? To understand change, you need to understand the people and organization that are impacted. As TD professionals, we are accountable for training and nurturing our colleagues so that they can be their best selves at work. This is never more critical than during change.

The ATD Change Management Certificate explores the process of facilitating organizational change and introduces the ATD CHANGE model, a strategic and tactical tool to guide you through the process of leading and influencing change. The program starts with a deep dive into the science of change to understand why change can be hard on both people and organizations. We then move on to the principles and stages of the ATD CHANGE model, grounded in theory and best practices but designed specifically to meet the needs of the TD field. Using a case study and working with an expert facilitator and your peers, you’ll have the chance to apply each stage of the model to a real-world, TD scenario. Armed with a step-by-step approach and plenty of supporting tools and resources, you will leave the program ready to become a change leader who is prepared to navigate the personal and organizational dynamics of change in today’s work environment.
