Executive Programme in Leadership and Change Management (EPLCM)-02

Programme Overview

While ‘change’ has been the most consistent element of an organisation, research tells us that most change initiatives fail to achieve the desired objectives. One primary reason for this failure is the lack of skills among the managers involved in the change process. It’s passé that managers were valued for their functional skills; they at best got you where you are today. What is most likely to take you to the next level and help you to grow is the ability to anticipate, strategise, and execute the phenomenon called change. The Leadership and Change Management programme attempts to sensitise you to see change as a daily occurrence (versus an event) and will abreast you with leadership competencies which will keep you abreast of leadership competencies to help you lead transformational change in your organisational environment. Addressing change is a symbiotic process, necessary for organisations as well as for their leaders – to realise and embrace change in order to stay relevant. EPLCM is precisely aimed to address this growing need.

Key Learning Objectives

Why organisational change holds greater relevance in today’s work context?

  c. What is more effective, internal intervention or an external consultant?
