Change Management Essentials (CME)
What makes change initiatives successful? Change Management Essentials methodology (CME) is the center piece of the DNA change implementation approach. Delivered over a two-day program, this interactive and engaging workshop is designed to educate and empower key management and change sponsors responsible for implementing organization change by arming them with an understanding of the practical, repeatable, step-by-step CME change implementation approach. Participants in the workshop will immediately be able to apply the tools and techniques to current projects and use them as a foundation for organizational change project planning. Participants receive a comprehensive manual which serves as a reference guide beyond the workshop.
CME Project Application Workshop
This highly interactive three-day workshop is designed for intact project teams and sponsors responsible for implementing a specific change or project. The workshop expands on the Change Management Essentials course, offering participants the opportunity to jumpstart critical projects by producing actionable deliverables while simultaneously learning the principles of the CME Implementation Methodology. Participants receive a comprehensive manual which serves as a reference guide beyond the workshop.
Building internal capability in a standardized methodology and toolset improves the ROI beyond specific project success. Building the CME competency of a critical mass of select internal resources ensures expanded success of future projects. We utilize a highly experiential case study driven process to certify individuals in the standardized CME approach. This produces common language and skill sets resulting in an efficient application strategy tied to the program/project management process in each organization. A subset of the certification process is the CME Trainer Certification. This is offered to licensed organizations who want to deliver CME on their own.
Participants will receive an electronic version of the CME Implementation Plan and a Certificate of Completion. Participant outcomes include:
- Categorizes and reinforces prior experience in change management.
- Case study learning experience to provide practical experience on the principles and tactics for an effective change plan.
- Certifies the understanding of key principles necessary to create proper implementation plans.
Leveraging data gathered from the Sponsor Behavior Inventory (SBI), DNA will work with your change sponsors in a highly interactive workshop designed to:
- Build sponsor awareness of their strengths and barriers
- Practice key sponsor behaviors in a safe environment
- Create their own action plans for improved sponsorship
