More about our modules

Planning for Success has a broad menu of modules to choose from.

Our 1-day foundation module – Change Management Health Check – is provided by the Bradgate and Rodely Partnership and ensures that the building blocks are in place for a team or organisation to successfully manage change.

Our 1-day summary module – Introduction to Project and Programme Management – provides delegates with a strong overview or refresher for change management, summarising all key aspects.

Our other half-day specialist modules provide greater insight into more specific elements of change management:

  • Governance and Assurance – the importance of effective project governance and assurance, and how they ensure that your desired change becomes a reality
  • Business Case Development – the process of building a strong, approvable business case and the tools you need to do it
  • Project Planning – how to make project plans that will drive your change forward to become a reality and not just create pretty pictures
  • Stakeholder Management – how to effectively engage and communicate with project and programme stakeholders to successfully lead them through change
  • Risk Management – how to effectively identify, assess, evaluate and monitor risks and issues, giving you the best chance of success
  • Project Completion – how to finish projects well, get the most out of change and making it sustainable for as many people as possible
