Experience, Manage and Lead Change (1 to 2 days)
Mark Twain put it best: „The only person who likes change is a baby with a wet diaper.”
Let’s be honest, we humans are habitual animals. We hate change. It creates unrest and insecurity. Whether and how an organization deals with this uncertainty depends not on effective project management, but on the accompanying change management – i.e., the measures in place to care for the stakeholders affected. Regardless if in a leadership position implementing a change initiative, or project managers tasked with rolling out a change project, or simply team members wishing to be recognized for showing initiative in a time of change, all can be agents of change.
This seminar presents models and methods to better understand and accompany change projects. Participants explore which external and internal forces drive change and which restrain it and how to strengthen or weaken either. Numerous templates and questionnaires to support their work are shared. Readiness for change is reviewed on both an organizational and an individual level. The physical and psychological effects of change on the individual are explored as well.
The seminar has a workshop character in that participants can work on an actual change initiative currently affecting their work routine. The outcome is a detailed Action Plan.
Business Modelling with the Business Model Canvas (2 days)
The Business Model Canvas is an internationally recognized tool with which business models can be brought to paper in a compact and transparent manner. In this manner business leaders, be they entrepreneurs, change agents or business owners, can describe and evaluate the rationale behind their future or current venture and how it creates, delivers, and captures value.
This seminar familiarizes participants with the concepts of business models and introduces the Business Model Canvas through direct application to their current business cases. At the end of the seminar, participants understand the interrelated nature of the nine key components of a business plan, i.e., Value Proposition, Market Channels, Customer Segments, Customer Relationships, Revenue Streams, Key Activities, Key Partnerships, Key Resources, and Cost Structure. This seminar has a workshop character. Concepts are presented and discussed but the core of the seminar focuses on providing participants the opportunity to develop or refine their own business models.
Final results will be presented and discussed within the group in a facilitated feedback session.
