Learn to harness the leadership skills, political resources, and cultural understandings needed to guide successful organizational change. This program utilizes a unique analytical framework to address the change process from three perspectives: strategic, political, and cultural. Each of these lenses provides critical insights and tools that can help you avoid the pitfalls associated with managing change.

The 21st century organization is enormously complex, difficult to understand, and even more difficult to manage. Effective managers must have a strong knowledge of the people in the organization and the tasks they perform. They must also have the skills to use that knowledge in practical and flexible ways.

Leading Change in Complex Organizations presents innovative perspectives on organizational challenges, offering proven tools and frameworks to address them. The issues examined in the program—ranging from digitization to dynamic work design to workplace meritocracy—apply across sectors, industries, regions, and technical domains.

This is a highly interactive program that draws managers and executives from around the world. As a participant in this program you will learn frameworks that are grounded in research and demonstrated through classroom conversations, exercises, group work, case studies and a software-based business simulation. The program is taught by world renowned MIT Sloan faculty as well as non-academic practitioners who demonstrate the application of course material.

In this program, you will acquire an understanding of:

  • Forces that are transforming traditional management goals and practices
  • Practical tools and techniques for galvanizing the organization around change
  • Innovative incentives that organizations can offer to attract, retain, and manage employees who do not respond to familiar workplace rewards or aspire to traditional careers
  • Diagnosing organizational cultures and the role they play in change projects
  • Frameworks for making strategic business decisions in light of digitization and data analytics
  • Principles and methods of dynamic work design
  • Critical success factors for implementing technological change in environments where failure rates are commonplace and few technologies seem to be implemented smoothly
  • And, in general, why great ideas don’t get implemented—and how to overcome the many barriers to change.
