With the accelerated corporate pace, leading and managing change has become a critical factor for organisations. To stay relevant and compete, leaders need to be at the helm of change initiatives to navigate challenges and ensure business growth and success. In the new digital era, planning for change, identifying forces of change, assessing resistance, selecting an intervening path and nurturing continuous change are 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.  



Participants will learn to: 

  • The underlying frameworks of organisational change and how to identify key roles i.e. change leaders, change agents & recipients of change
  • How to develop strategies for designing and executing change initiatives, inspire buy-in and promote action through positive reinforcement
  • Addressing challenges in implementation of change programmes
  • How leaders can motivate individuals to align their efforts to achieve successful change
  • How to effectively anticipate and overcome resistance to change within the organisation
  • Developing change plans that help sustain and institutionalise change initiatives and create agility and responsiveness within the organisation

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.
