Why become a Certified Change Agent(CCA)?

The Change Agent program develops skills in change management and associated tasks for successful delivery of change in organizations and individuals. It is methodology agnostic, choosing to focus on critical thinking, insights and the tools, techniques and competencies to build unique approaches that fit unique change events.

 

The program covers theory and practice. Real life change situations are dispersed throughout the workshop content, with regular activities to build knowledge, collaborate with peers and develop plans for specific events brought to the table for discussion. Lego Serious Play is incorporated into the learning activities, with video analysis and of several group, pairs and individual activities. Learners leave with an understanding of the needs to develop their change approaches, practical tools for metrics, behaviours and engagement, as well as their own personal change agent profile.

 

This program will be particularly beneficial for those who have recently been asked to undertake a change agent role as part of their normal duties or need to develop a culture of change readiness within their organization.

Course Curriculum

The workshop will cover these foundational change learning components and end with an examination of knowledge in the final hour of day 3. Following an exam pass, attendees will be invited to submit a written essay demonstrating their application of knowledge gained. This is recommended for submission within 125 days. The essay will be reviewed by our assessor board and if it meets their criteria then a Certified Change Agent (CCA) designation is awarded to be renewed every 3 years.
