Compact seminar on successfully shaping transformation

Programme overview

A compact seminar for managing directors, executives and senior managers who are responsible for, design and accompany organisational transformation.

We bring together science and practice: INFORM - ENABLE - MOBILISE

"The country needs new organisations",

yet about 70 percent of all transformations still fail. Results from research and practice show that companies often encounter the same hurdles and also benefit from the same success factors. In this compact seminar, we will show you what these are and which insights your company can particularly benefit from in order to holistically design and successfully implement your transformation. Together with academics, peers and transformation coaches, you will reflect on your challenges and develop options for action according to your needs.

(2) ENABLE: Use cases provide insights into practical implementations and at the same time convey possible tools for successfully shaping one's own transformation processes.

(3) MOBILIZE: In coaching sessions with experienced transformation coaches and peers, participants will work out together which options for action exist and are recommended for
     their own transformation case.
