Henley Business School
Implementing change is not an option for successful organisations, it’s a
necessity. A glance at the roll-call of recently failed companies 1 shows that
past performance is no guarantee of future success.
Making effective change requires leaders to inspire people to think
and behave differently – motivating them to understand and own the
need for change and commit to its implementation.
The Managing Change programme at Henley concentrates on giving
you the tools to embed change in your organisation and to create an
enduring culture of innovation and adaptability. You will leave with
techniques to manage change successfully from a strategic, leadership
and process perspective. It will also show you where your time and effort
is likely to have most effect – and where it won’t. Several change ‘myths’
will be put to rest during this programme!
Who is the programme for
Any senior manager required to lead a change initiative from a large scale
organisation or cultural change to a smaller departmental or team-based change.

In-house and international programmes
All Henley Executive Education programmes can be run in-house
anywhere in the world. This allows a programme to be tailored to
the dynamics of participants from one company and to particular
Henley partners with a number of organisations who wish to send
a significant number of participants through a Henley programme
– perhaps over a period of years. As part of this partnership we can
provide an impact survey which assesses the impact of the training
for both individuals and organisation.
We would welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can help you
improve your return on investment in leadership development at
Henley. For more information please contact Gemma Kay
