Description

In this one-day executive course from Kelley, you’ll learn about what it takes to formulate and lead organizational change of any scope or size.

Start building momentum in your career. You’re ready to go to the next level in your career, and a short course from the Kelley School of Business Executive Education program will take you there. Interactive learning conducted by leading industry experts—all in one or two days.

Are you prepared to lead your team through the challenges of organizational change?

Like in life, the only constant in business is change. Shifts in market conditions, new competitors, product updates, mergers and restructurings, new managers—no matter where it comes from or why it’s happening, change is likely to affect every employee at every level of your organization when it arrives. The question is: are you prepared to lead them through it?

Whether your role requires you to initiate change or to simply manage it, the skill to do so in a timely and effective manner is crucial for any business that hopes to outlive the competition, and for any leader who aspires to succeed.

Skillfully lead your team through the trials of transformation.

In this one-day course, you’ll learn about what it takes to formulate and lead organizational change of any scope or size. You’ll use real case studies to understand the forces for and against change, and develop a framework of ideas useful in the execution of change initiatives.

You’ll walk away knowing how to predict the challenges that come along with organizational change, diagnose obstacles and resistance, and draw from a range of approaches for making expedient and sustainable transformation.

This course is interactive, and the goal is to help you apply course materials and concepts to your specific organization. We invite you to come prepared to discuss a change initiative drawn from your own current circumstances.
