Resilient organisations need strategic HR thinkers. The changing nature of organisations and culture– increased digitisations, unexpected global events, changing stakeholder needs – can be difficult to understand and manage. To be a people expert, change leader and value creator, you must move beyond HR.
This three-day HR training from RSM Executive Education empowers you to think differently about strategic culture and change. It challenges you to look beyond the obvious and supports you to create greater value in your organisation.
Where other courses simply lecture you on HR strategy, this programme takes a unique and distinctly RSM approach, with highly interactive workshops based on innovative research insights. Your learning journey is guided by RSM’s professors and lecturers. Experts who will teach you to think differently and provide you with practical tools and techniques you can use immediately. By sharing in each other’s pitfalls and successes, your interactions with peers also form a critical part of the learning process.
At the end of the training programme, you can lead people and culture into the future with an advanced and strategic HR skillset that prepares you to elevate your role in your organisation.
You're experienced in HR and are moving to a more strategic role where you will lead a team and interact daily with senior management.
Your current strategic role is stagnating, and you struggle to find inspiration and gain credibility with senior colleagues. Bring the spark back to your career and fulfil your potential.
You’re moving more towards an HR role from an unrelated function and need to extend your existing knowledge of the industry through strategic insights and interactions with other HR professionals.
During this strategic HR training programme, you will learn from Dr Rebecca Hewett, Dr Jochem Kroezen, and Dr Rouven Kanitz. Occasionally we may substitute other faculty members according to the content of the programme and their availability.
Rebecca Hewett is an associate professor of HRM at RSM. Her research focuses on how people management can best be implemented to enhance performance and well-being. Her PhD was on workplace rewards and motivation at Royal Holloway, University of London. Before that she worked as an HR professional for 10 years, including a role as head of HR operations for the UK’s communications regulator.
Jochem Kroezen has extensive teaching experience across university programmes on subjects such as social systems change, culture, strategic transformation and research methods. He was an assistant professor in international business at the University of Cambridge, and specialises in the sociological side of organisation and management theory. His current research focuses on ‘craft’ as an approach to organising work.
Rouven Kanitz is an assistant professor of organisational change at RSM. His research helps organisations to navigate change processes in more effective and sustainable ways. Mostly by researching the human side of change; specific interventions, measuring responses, and opportunities from digital technology. Rouven has worked in the medical technology industry and as a consultant for change projects.
