With the accelerated corporate pace, leading and managing change has become a critical factor for organisations. And leaders are required to be at the helm of change initiatives to navigate challenges and ensure business growth and success. Given the current volatility, planning for change, identifying forces of change, assessing resistance, selecting an intervening path and continuous communication is essential for organisational renewal.

This 4-day in-depth programme is designed for senior leaders to help understand organisational change, as well as anticipate and manage the impact at an individual and organisational level. Real-time change scenarios through simulation will equip participants with pragmatic tools to understand issues related to change management and develop skills needed to understand, analyse, plan and implement change successfully.  



The 4-day immersive programme provides executives with the opportunity to: 

  • Learn the frameworks, mechanisms and effective strategies for planning and implementing organisational change
  • Diagnose organisational roadblocks and address challenges to drive initiatives forward
  • Build organisational agility to keep abreast of evolving business scenarios
  • Establish organisational readiness to adapt to a new environment
  • Gain insight into how technology shapes up organisational evolution to drive innovation
  • Acquire tactics to influence your team for transition and overcome resistance
  • Inculcate a culture that readily embraces and encourages a new way of doing things
  • Build coalitions and develop effective networks to help sustain change

State of the art simulation and an integrated change project will equip participants with pragmatic and cutting-edge tools to understand the issues related to change management and develop the skills needed to understand, analyse, plan and implement change successfully.

This programme is meant for senior business executives including General Managers who desire to deepen their understanding of the change process. Moreover, those coming to attend this programme must be willing to exploit new business opportunities by being the change agents and also by mobilising the forces of change in their enterprises.
