“More than ever, leaders need to set clear direction for their organizations, and then work to align their business around the new strategy. That sounds easy, but it’s an involved, multi-faceted process that they need to devote time and attention to getting right”
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (PRWEB) February 16, 2023
MIT Sloan Executive Education is currently accepting applications for ‘Leading Strategic Change: How to Really Deliver the Shift Your Organization Needs,’ a new course designed to provide leaders with the critical knowledge needed to deliver strategic change and sustained performance through transformative periods. This four-and-a half day course will be conducted in person, June 5-9.
Led by renowned MIT Sloan faculty and thought leaders in organizational change—including Senior Lecturer Dr. Elsbeth Johnson, Associate Dean of Leadership Nelson P. Repenning, and Senior Lecturer Ben Shields—this course makes extensive use of case studies, table discussions, group work, and reflection.
Created by Dr. Johnson, the course is based on her proven “Step Up, Step Back” approach, which requires leaders to do more in the early stages of the change and then less in its later stages. In addition to understanding how to apply this process to their own change initiatives, participants will also learn why many of our most commonly-held beliefs about change actually set organizations up to fail.
“More than ever, leaders need to set clear direction for their organizations, and then work to align their business around the new strategy. That sounds easy, but it’s an involved, multi-faceted process that they need to devote time and attention to getting right,” said Dr. Johnson. “This course will give them the frameworks and tools they need to decide on, explain and then execute on the change their business needs.”
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will earn a certificate of course completion from MIT Sloan Executive Education. Key takeaways include:
- An understanding of the critical stages required to successfully lead a strategic change effort and what each of these stages requires from leaders
- Insight into what is likely to derail the change and how to manage these potential pitfalls
- A clear, concrete, step-by-step action plan to set up the change—and those tasked with delivering it—for success
