Course description

CM2-01 Foundation of Operational Excellence

The Big Picture: Why CM2 and the common organizational misalignments that result in inefficiency & ineffectiveness

Foundation of Operational Excellence (CM2-01) is the first course in our CM2 enterprise change and configuration management series. CM2-01 presents a structured and effective methodology for documenting, validating, releasing, and changing requirements. In addition, it provides methods for reducing intervention resource costs. It addresses the process enhancements that an organization must make in order to accommodate change and keep all requirements clear, concise, and valid.

A course certificate is awarded upon completion. CM2 courses are eligible for CEUs from Purdue University.
