University of Edinburgh Business School Masterclass on Leading Strategic Change – 26th/27th November 2015 (Booking Deadline – 19th November 2015 at 9am)

In our increasingly complex and interconnected world, nothing stands still for long. For leaders, the challenge is to understand how to navigate the latest developments and lead strategic change in response.  But the processes which lead to effective transformation are often still ill-understood, and more than 70% of planned organisational change fails.  Drawing on real-world experiences and practical exercises grounded in the latest theoretical advances, this two-day programme will equip leaders with the skills required to understand why change is needed and how to deliver it, effectively and sustainably.
