Change Management with Mariner

We are proud to partner with Mariner to provide you with virtual, instructor-led courses related to Change Management.

According to the Association of Change Management Professionals® (ACMP®), change management is "the practice of applying a structured approach to the transition of an organization from a current state to a future state to achieve expected benefits".

The approaches learned in these courses support employees in understanding change, embracing change, and sustaining change within your organization.

Why change management?

When change management principles are understood and applied by change leaders, organizations are better positioned to:

  • Proactively respond to employee resistance
  • Support transformation initiatives
  • Address employee needs and expectations
  • Anticipate problems

Our courses help learners understand critical concepts of change management that can be applied and integrated into the work that they do.
