The Change Management Body Of Knowledge (CMBoK) + The Change Managers Handbook
THE EFFECTIVE CHANGE MANAGER - The Change Management Body Of Knowledge (CMBoK)
The Change Management Body of Knowledge was launched in October, 2013 with the formal title of The effective change manager / The Change Management Body of Knowledge.
In thirteen short chapters (see list later), it describes the core knowledge that every Change Manager needs to know. Produced as collaborative effort between APMG-International and the Change Management Institute (CMI), it is an invaluable source of information.
This CMBoK is a major resource for practitioners of Change Management and those who work alongside change managers, project/programme managers, communications professionals, learning and development experts, line managers, and executives. It is also an excellent companion to anyone sitting the Change Management Foundation exam
THE EFFECTIVE CHANGE MANAGER'S HANDBOOK - Essential Guidance To The Change Management Body Of Knowledge.
"The Effective Change Manager's Handbook" is aligned to the CMBoK, chapter by chapter. It's also endorsed by the CMI and is the text book used in our Change Management courses.
"The Effective Change Manager's Handbook" explains change management in an easy to understand manner, with plenty of case studies and practical tips.
It is an outstanding resource for change managers in all areas where change is either imminent. It is arguably the most definitive, practical and up-to-date book on change management theory and practice available.
