Leading Management Transformation

Leading Management Transformation

A ten-month bespoke postgraduate programme, created in collaboration with BAE Systems, designed to equip senior managers and leaders with the skills, mindset and motivation to drive innovation and change. 

About the Programme

Leading Management Transformation has been developed to address cultural leadership challenges, preparing managers to look beyond competence in their functional domain and empowering you to lead strategic innovation and change.

This programme builds on the success of previous programmes such as Innovation in Manufacturing and Engineering, and provides an innovative learning design including inspirational masterclasses, critical reflection, collaborative projects, virtual learning and facilitated action learning groups.


Programme Elements

The structure is made up of an overnight experiential and four modules, each delivered over approximately eight weeks. You'll spend just two days a month out of your workplace, along with e-learning to reinforce your knowledge. Learning takes place in a blended and highly bespoke format using the best medium to suit you, wherever possible, at a time to suit your learning. 

An overnight experiential to build trust, develop the foundations of a trust network and start the challenge.

Flexible learning using the best medium to suit each individual and, wherever possible, at a time to suit your learning.
