Course media


Communicate the Change Foundation is relevant to all large-scale change programmes. This includes strategic change such as the adoption of a new business model or moving to centralised/decentralised ways of working.

The change could be around the introduction of a new operating system like SAP or Oracle, introducing new technologies to support an acquisition or merger or in response to geopolitical changes such as Brexit.

It could be a tactical change such as reviewing the customer invoicing system or the travel and expenses system or a new company policy.

It supports any change programme that causes disruption and is likely to encounter resistance in the organisation if not managed professionally.

It is presented by David Brotzen, one of the founders of Brotzen Mayne, a communication consultancy specialising in large, complex change management programmes. Brotzen Mayne is a member of the CPD Certification Service.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
