Program design International Change Management Master Class

This 3-day master class gives you the latest scientific insights into change management in an international environment, combined with practical assignments and cases from participants. The International Change Management Master Class focuses on various aspects of organizational change: from causes and diagnosis, to planning and implementation. We give particular attention to human behavior and the psychological, social and (cross-)cultural processes involved. So you can create the right conditions and goals for international organizational change.

Day 1
Start with the basics: how can you shape change in an environment of cross-cultural differences? And what methods are right for your organization? Learn more about the impact of mindset and culture, and acquire tools to conduct a thorough analysis.

Day 2
The second day covers the organizational culture, the dynamics of change and how you can use tools such as communication to shape change. We translate these into the lessons learned that you will apply in your own case and organization.

Day 3
The starting point for day 3 is an evaluation of what you’ve applied so far in your own case. After this, we zoom in further and look at practical tools for setting up, managing cross-cultural issues in the change context and improving your change project.

The Master class in Change Management is also offered in Dutch
