About your Diploma

Business change is essential. For any business to stay ahead of the game, or at least stay abreast with the competition, it needs to adapt and alter its methods. This is due to consumer needs constantly moving the goalposts, as well as an ever-evolving society forever changing the way businesses operate. 
 
For this reason, businesses require professionals astute in the effects of that constant change. Not only do they need to understand how to implement change, but they also need to know exactly how it will affect the business and what the ramifications may be. 
 
This BCS Foundation Certificate in Business Change is designed to help you do just that, by covering an array of modules focussed on supporting business change programmes within your business.
 
You will learn everything from the principles, processes, roles and approaches involved in business change, to the best way to drive this change by using information technology. After which, you will be able to help your business adapt to the modern landscape by taking an informed and logical approach.
