About

Your organization’s ability to innovate—in new programs, products, services, and structures—is a powerful competitive advantage. But to innovate successfully, you need to embrace change, know how to make it happen, and understand how to sustain it.

You can study the Strategies for Leading Successful Change Initiatives program at Harvard University.

Through a carefully designed sequence of presentations, classroom exercises, cases, and group discussions, you will develop a deeper understanding of the links between culture, change management, and innovation—and, in turn, expand your ability to translate ideas into practical roadmaps for action that produce lasting results. With proven frameworks and tools for launching, leading, and realizing value from successful change initiatives, you’ll be able to contribute at a higher level to your organization’s performance and success.
