Identifying the relations between different parts of your organisation is a critical part of successful change projects. These relationships are often barriers to change and can cause transformation projects to breakdown. Systems thinking – a holistic way of looking at the relationship between different parts of the organisation – can help to overcome these barriers. 

This two-day immersive workshop will guide attendees through a systems thinking approach to change, giving them the tools to ensure their change initiatives are successful.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand systems thinking, and how you can use it to ensure successful change projects.
  • Work through a real-life case study to apply what you have learned throughout the workshop.
  • Create action plans to de-risk your change projects for the future and become a change agent within your organisation.

  • HRDs
  • HRBPs
  • Senior OD and Talent Professionals with responsibility for designing and leading change initiatives
