Duration1 Day

This program is designed for mid-level managers.  The session begins with an introduction to the seven stages of effective change management. Then participants engage in a challenging and realistic computer-based simulation that gives them an opportunity to apply what they just learned related to the stages of managing change.

Participants form into teams of four to six people. Each team has a laptop and they log in to the simulation where they are expected to manage change within a company that is pursuing a new business strategy.

The goal for the teams is to get as many people within the simulated organization to understand and then buy into the proposed changes related to the new business strategy. They are expected to accomplish this within a specific budget and time frame. The latter part of the session includes discussions on the various changes going on within your organization and what needs to be done to manage the changes more effectively.

Simulation Objectives:

  • Explore change management theory and related best practices.

  • Experience theory in action in a sophisticated business simulation.

  • Reflect on simulation results and identify opportunities to improve.

  • Apply their learning to real-world projects.

  • Share knowledge with their peers in a collaboration space.

  • Have access to a multitude of decision support tools for each stage of the change process.

Organizations Conducting this Simulation: 

  • Bayer

  • General Electric

  • McGraw-Hill

  • Nokia

  • Columbia Business School

  • U.S. Air Force
