Great class - touches on every aspect of Change Management being utilized in our workplace today.

The practical application for change management is one of the most useful aspects in CM. Understanding how all of it works together will allow me to continue to evaluate / reevaluate the structure and activities within my own organization and those I support.

The detail of change management really helped me understand what is lacking in my work environment.

I like the additional knowledge and deeper dive into change process. Getting input and discussion from other classmates and instructor is invaluable.

Best CM course I've taken. Loved the way the material fits all worlds - government and commercial.

One of the best training courses I have attended.

I got a tremendous amount of feedback from instructor and the students in formal workshops and informal discussions in and after course times.

Great Class! Gives us the vision we need and shows us how far we currently are from reaching that vision.

Enjoyed the material and how it was presented at a level that will facilitate direct application.

It is very nice to see that none of the instructors try to push any particular CM tool (a big concern with my management).

Would recommend this to anyone who seeks CM knowledge / improvement / looking for best practices in the future or now

Great ideas to improve processes and procedures.

Real life examples shown were helpful in providing better understanding of suggestions to change.
