Teacher: Rita McGrath

What you'll learn in this leadership training:

This is a five-day program focused on the process of finding opportunities, launching new ventures, and leading necessary organizational changes to revitalize an organization.

Participants learn how to thrive in rapidly changing and highly uncertain environments, gain insight into a current pressing change initiative within their own organization, and immediately begin to apply the learning to make rapid progress on the issue.

If you have ever worried about how to drive new growth or how to make a change initiative successful, you will enjoy the insights developed in this course.

Impact


Benefits in the Current Context

"This program is more relevant than ever, because it presumes high levels of uncertainty, complexity, and velocity in every tool and technique we present. It further covers both the analytical side of coping with uncertainty (what to do) as well as the human side (how to get people to realize the challenges and respond appropriately). In this program, we insist on driving strategic decision-making from the perspective of deep insight and differentiating rather than going along with the crowd. And at Columbia, since we are in the heart of the financial markets, we are very close to the phenomenon." 

–Rita Gunther McGrath, faculty director

Summary of Benefits

  • Explore how to lead through change and uncertainty
  • Learn to make use of an entrepreneurial mindset in an established corporation
  • Understand the political and implementation challenges of growth
  • Discover a proven framework for leading growth
  • Gain insight into the cultural and leadership challenges of the information economy

Upon completion of this program, you will earn five days towards a Certificate with select alumni and tuition benefits.


Program Structure

Rather than using standard business school cases, the application of the tools and concepts takes place as participants help one another find solutions to a thorny growth or change problem. Prior to the course, each participant prepares this 'personal case' which is used as the basis for small-group discussion. Each case group, consisting of other participants from non-competing organizations, creates a one-page summary, shared with the entire class at the end of the week. By the end of the week, most participants report having made significant progress on resolving their issues with actionable ideas they can take back to work and apply immediately.

A select set of additional readings and materials are also included, and each participant receives copies of relevant books.

Day One

  • Setting the context: an overview of why innovation is no longer optional in the transient advantage economy and the new strategy playbook
  • Introduction to an alternative to growth-strangling metrics: Real options reasoning
  • Creating an opportunity portfolio
  • Why customers should not be a mystery and 3 relevant tools
Day Two
  • Think Wrong Workshop, an immersion day on Design Thinking showing you how to unfreeze your thinking about your personal case
Day Three
  • Discovery Driven Planning, including an experiential simulation exercise
  • De-mystifying digital transformation: how increasingly strategy = innovation = digital
  • Create a simple formula for leading organizational transformation, accompanied with a diagnostic
Day Four
  • An entirely new force in our economy consists of complementors – learn why you can’t avoid understanding this to be successful
  • Platform strategies: the newest trend in business model
  • The economics and often counterintuitive behavior of two-sided markets
  • Why Uber’s original business model has flaws as a platform
  • Disengagement: how to gracefully shut down a project or end a business
Day Five
  • Nominated topics, in which participants propose the topics for discussion
  • Action planning for return
