The IS’s Change Management Team has developed a range of free training for councils to help improve their change management skills and capacity.
The training on offer includes:
The sessions focus on real-world examples and equip attendees with the knowledge and practical experience to feel confident applying the tools and techniques. After the training session, the Team is also happy to assist councils in their application of the tools and techniques to their own work.
Recently, the team delivered training to the Transformation Team at East Ayrshire Council and the Electronic Document Management System (EDMS) project team at Perth and Kinross Council.
We are always happy to discuss other potential areas in which councils would find training useful, so let us know if you have any in mind.
If you're interested in having the Change Management Team deliver any of their training sessions for free at your council, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
