Overview

Learn how to make real change happen

You’re driving change in your organization, working hard to meet new and complex challenges. We get that it’s tough. This program blends online learning with offline doing to strengthen your confidence, competence, and peer network to lead that change and have an impact.

In Driving Transformation you work with your own transformation case – a formal or informal change initiative you’re driving in your organization. You’ll learn by doing, with a close group of peers from across industries. You’ll apply useful theory and methods, prototype transformation in real-time, and get support from experts and coaches.

Apply new tools

Get effective methods to assess the current state, engage with stakeholders, design your roadmap for change, and prototype the future.

Remove barriers

Overcome the resistance by learning to influence through storytelling, engage people in new ways, coach yourself through turmoil and dare to take action.

Learn with peers

Work closely with a tight-knit group of other transformation leaders from around the world, all working with similar challenges, across a range of industries.

Course Goals

What you will learn

You can get theory from books and blogs. This program is about putting ideas into action and making real change happen.

Working directly with your own transformation case, you’ll learn an applicable playbook for driving change, including instantly useful methods, guiding templates and tangible cases. All while hacking your own case with support from our coaches, other program participants and your colleagues.

By the end of this course you will be able to:


Co-create, communicate and lead change initiatives to support authentic transformation in organizations.

Use a range of tools to bring your ideas to life, create compelling narratives, influence stakeholders and build momentum behind change processes.

Navigate transformation processes more confidently, working through challenges, resistance and barriers by selecting appropriate techniques and approaches.

Modules

Six areas of study

Creating a case for change

Build strong foundations for your transformation, outline your change case and get to know your peers to build a support network around you.

Learning from the future

Explore how you can let the future inform your change case, question your assumptions and shift your mindset to imagine a future where your transformation has taken hold.

Engagement & barriers

Learn how to facilitate people to think and act differently. Understand how to recognize and remove barriers, and overcome resistance, ingrained culture and legacy structures.

Prototyping & storytelling

Test how to show people what the outcomes of your change case could look and feel like. Create a compelling narrative and build ways to allow people to experience it through prototypes.

Building momentum & traction

Create a movement behind your change case. Build your coalition by generating awareness, interest, engagement and evangelism. Bring onboard allies and champions of the transformation.

Taking-off

Celebrate what you have achieved and create a forward moving energy that keeps the momentum of your change case going to deeply embed new working practices, mindsets and processes.

Format

What you'll be doing

An intensive 6 weeks of real-time learning-by-doing and coaching to unlock progress for your case. The program demands high commitment and engagement while being designed to be flexible.

The majority of the program content and tasks are available to go through any time you choose during the week. There are 1-2 small group calls each week that can be flexibly scheduled with your peer group. There are two fixed weekly live sessions, each Tuesday 15:00-16:30 CET and each Friday 15:00-16:00 CET.

Expect to dedicate 8-15 hours per week for group discussions, webinars, reading and individual work, although often this can be integrated into your existing day to day work.
