INSEAD Leading Successful Change Programme

Learn to lead change effectively

In today’s dynamic environment, leading successful change is no longer a managerial luxury but a critical necessity. It can be said that if someone cannot lead change successfully, they cannot lead. Yet the frightening truth is that up to 70% of change initiatives fail.

Leading Successful Change is a three-day programme designed to help you execute change more effectively in your organisation. You will learn about frameworks and tools that you can apply to lead change effectively; analyse different types of change and their different dynamics; and examine peoples’ attitudes towards change. This programme is also designed to help you analyse different sources of resistance and look at how to create change strategies that factor in the different, non-linear dynamics of a change process over time.

Important Information

Leading Successful Change is designed to enhance participants’ core capabilities for leading and sustaining change. It is necessary for applicants to have at least one change initiative, which allows them to successfully enrol in the programme.

What are change initiatives?

Change initiatives are usually plans and actions aiming at implementing a transforming process in an organisation that could result in a change in the culture, communication, human resource, logistics etc. Change initiatives come from all geographies, industries and even career levels, so it’s hard to generalise.

Common examples of challenges

  • Creating a company-wide culture of customer focus or digitalising product or service
  • Setting up a new system in an overseas subsidiary – with a lot of pushback from local employees
  • Adopting a new organisational solution and making sure it's fully implemented
  • Motivating employees to accept changes in a continuously changing business nature
  • Facing the changes in employment/process/system due to taking over new markets or companies or being acquired by others.

Why are they important in this programme?

Having change initiatives throughout the programme is extremely important if one is considering this programme. An important part of this programme is the opportunity for you to learn and perfect your change skills by doing instead of just thinking.

By arriving with a change initiative, this programme is designed to allow participants to contribute their unique experiences, personalise the tools to their own situation and make an impact when they leave. By the end, they all have a clear set of priorities and are ready to create an action plan that can be used immediately upon their return to work.
