Press Release: Change Management Debut

KM Institute Adds New Certifications in Change Management and Transformational Leadership to Curriculum; Debuts Symposium Event, June 27-29, 2016

(February 25, 2016 – Washington DC) The KM Institute, the global leader in Knowledge Management Certification, has added Change Management training to its growing curriculum, debuting with a symposium event this June focused on Transformational Change Leadership.

Students can earn new CKS* Certification in Transformational Change Leadership, and past Grads (CKM) can earn their Master CKM in Transformational Change Leadership.   The event, called the “Transformational Change Management and Leadership Symposium” will feature three tracks and up to 18 courses ranging from half-day to full-day classes.  The event will be held June 27-29 at the Sheraton Tysons in Tyson’s Corner, VA, outside Washington, DC.

 “Change management has rightfully focused on traditional communications and learning plans,” says Douglas Weidner, KM Institute Chairman, “but change is accelerating. Today’s knowledge leaders need to master transformational leadership models and methods.  For the first time, in one program, this symposium provides the knowledge and learning leadership skill sets well ahead of traditional offerings. The KM Institute’s mission is to enable you to excel in the Knowledge Age, and this symposium will set you on that path to success.

KMI is partnering with leading experts and consultants in the Change Management space, including Jane Maliszewski (Owner, VAULT Associates), John Lewis, PhD (Co-Founder, CoHero Institute, LLC), Paula Pierce (CEO and Principle Culture Builder, Peridona Strategies), Katy Saulpaugh (Practice Lead at Enterprise Knowledge, LLC) and Michael Haynes, acclaimed consultant in IT adaptability and change management.

The entire event will be video recorded, so attendees can literally benefit from all sessions. These sessions will be converted to online/e-learning programs (2017), which will enable online Certification options as well.  Students who attend the debut event will be “grandfathered” access to the e-learning courses when available.

This training and its associated pre-requisite training for certification is ideal for anyone tasked to lead or help manage a traditional Change-related project, or an enterprise transformation such as a KM implementation entails. But all classes are open-enrollment master classes, not just certification programs.

Common Change Management will be addressed, from IT adaptation to cultural awareness to leadership and personnel challenges.  Plus new methods and techniques for enterprise transformation will be explored by leading consultants in the field.

Registration is now available.   Go to the main event page here:
