Leading and managing organizational change processes
The MSM Change Management course will help you to understand the rationale and objectives of organizational change and how to communicate these to the stakeholders involved. Furthermore, it will guide you to design an effective change program and develop the personal management skills to successfully lead change processes in your organization.
Change is a constant factor in today’s global business world. Organizations have to adapt to their external environment, but also make changes within their own structure. Organizational change requires a fundamentally different approach to organizational processes from the traditional approach of management. Managers have to decide on the direction of change and guide their organization through the transition process.
Did you know that you can combine this course with the Strategic Leadership course which will run the week before? Combining these two courses will save you up to a maximum of €500,-

"As I finished the Change Management course at MSM, I was full of hope, energy and enthusiasm to make a difference in my own life, family, community and country. My vision for leadership was rekindled, my passion to inspire and lead change was revitalized and my hope for inspiring others to follow their passions was greatly honed. Indeed, I was fired up to go and do great work. It was a very creative platform and life-changing experience.”
