Some projects are initiated with a primary objective of creating change in an organisation. Others will deliver outputs that will enable an organisation to adapt and evolve. As such, those people managing projects must understand how to assess the impact of their projects on the organisation. Furthermore, they need to be able to plan and implement project management and change management approaches that reflect the nature of the organisational impact, and be able to assess whether their project has achieved the required organisational outcomes.

Project-based methods can be used to enable organisations to adapt. This course examines how change management theory can be incorporated into a project-based methodology to guide the change process, and to ensure achievement of the desired project outcomes (benefits). This includes methods that assist in managing the impact to the organisation and individuals. The course demonstrates why the evaluation of the project outcomes is required to ensure that the intended benefits have been achieved. The course also addresses the management of changes to project baselines.
