“Mistakes teach us a tremendous amount, and we tend to remember them. The  change management simulation lets you make mistakes without any real cost. And if you make them here in the program, you are less likely to make them on the job.”

Nancy Rothbard | Professor of Management | Wharton Business School

Description
Change initiatives often fail to deliver their full potential because people struggle to commit to a new way of doing things.  Backed by more than 20 years of research, industry insights, and results, this proven change management simulation combines proven change management theory with hands-on practice in an engaging, low-risk simulation experience.

Facilitated by our experts or your internally certified staff, this change management simulation training workshop teaches both the “what to do” and “how to be” of successful organizational change.

This 6- to 8-hour live or virtual program simulates a year-in-the-life of a team leading change. Leaders and managers are challenged to roll up their sleeves and tackle a realistic change project in teams of four to six people. More than 75% of their time is spent on team-based project work where they must lead the full life-cycle of change.

Each change team has a laptop, and they log into a simulation in which 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.

Change teams 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 in your unique environment.

Learning Objectives
The change management simulation enables participants to explore change management theory and related best practices, apply their learning to real-world projects, and share knowledge with their peers in a safe space so that they can better:

  • Understand the importance of the business imperative driving the change
  • Actively engage and align key stakeholders with a new ways of doing things
  • Co-create a vision for change
  • Motivate and mobilize the organization to change
  • Experiment to generate quick wins
  • Speak and act with a common change language
  • Build a highly engaged culture of strategy execution

This program has been conducted in leading executive MBA programs, Fortune 500 companies as part of their ongoing leadership development, and as a key tool to help kick off a variety of critical change initiatives (mergers, acquisitions, new strategies, reorganizations, project kickoffs, etc.).

Target Audience
This program is for between 12 and 250 leaders and change agents involved in critical change initiatives.

We reviewed the top Leadership Development offerings and selected LSA’s 12-month Leadership Program based upon the value and systemic approach. The feedback on the program, approach, and results was phenomenal. While other programs may be better known, they were more theoretical and did not compare in terms of practicality, quality, and results.

LSA’s executive coach based his approach on understanding our business circumstances and strategy, as well as our leadership aspirations. The customized coaching covered all aspects of leadership; it was not simply a touchy-feely endeavor. In fact, the focus on clear business outcomes and real life circumstances challenged me to develop my thinking and actions related to leading the business.”
