Change Management Foundations

Many Change Management initiatives fail because people do not know where to start or how to sustain change. In this program, students learn the foundations of Change Management through our online course and are introduced to Acuity Institute’s Change Management roadmap.

While there are numerous approaches to Change Management, Acuity’s Change Management approach encompasses the general industry standard of evaluating the organization’s issue/problem, initiating action to make change, planning the change while encouraging stakeholder buy-in, executing the plans while being flexible to the changing landscape, and how to sustain the change and make it “stick” so that the organization truly gains benefits of the change.

Course description

Acuity Institute’s courses are conducted online and use a multi-media format that includes audio from experts, examples of successful performance improvement, interactive simulations and quizzes, and the most current and robust tools and techniques available. This is a “self-paced” online course and can be accessed at any time—and—anywhere, which provides the most flexibility in completing the course.

To help in starting projects on a change management pathway, our practitioners have assembled the Change Management Foundations Toolkit for student use. The toolkit, which includes the Change Reliance Self-Assessment and the Six Systems Factor Template, is yours to keep and use forever alongside the course eBook.

If you are interested in applying for the ACMP CCMP credential, you will want to take Acuity Institute’s Change Management Professional course which satisfies the 21-hour training requirement. Please note that you must further apply with the ACMP and fulfill all requirements to earn the CCMP credential from the ACMP. Acuity Institute is a Qualified Education Provider for the Association for Change Management Professionals (ACMP). This course, on its own, does not meet the training requirement for CCMP certification from the ACMP.

Here's what learners had to say about this course


For many of Acuity’s courses, we have assembled a Toolkit, which contains a complete, user-friendly set of the templates included in the course. The toolkit assists practitioners in keeping focused on their project work and not creating “templates”. For ease of use, the templates can be downloaded directly to your computer and are yours to keep and utilize in future projects. The templates have been developed in common formats (MS Word, MS Excel or MS PowerPoint).
