The external environment has become increasingly turbulent and uncertain. Many organisations are pressured to restructure; changing their priorities, and developing new products and services. Another issue is that change initiatives often cost more, take longer and achieve less than originally intended.
You are a manager who is involved in driving change or innovation within your organisation. You are, for example, a team leader or project manager looking for the tools and frameworks on how to lead change. If you are responsible for managing process improvement initiatives that require effective organisation and communication to succeed, you will also find this course useful.
By being aware of the changes and processes that my organisation and teams are dealing with, I can respond better and lead more effectively. The three days of RSM’s ‘Leading Change’ course just flew by. You learn how to drive people to take action. The programme’s combination of theory and practical application mean you can use it immediately. The energy and knowledge of the teacher and interacting with other programmes were great. I chose Leading Change as part of RSM’s diploma programme, which I joined because the modules will expand my knowledge and skills as a manager. It gives my career a boost for the future.

During the Leading Change programme you will learn from Prof. Barbara Banda. Occasionally we may substitute other faculty members according to the content of the programme and their availability.
Barbara Banda is highly skilled coach for senior leaders and is a visiting faculty member at RSM, Duke Corporate Education, and TIAS School for Business and Society. She’s a specialist in leadership development, business strategy and organisational change, and has led large-scale strategic change projects for multinationals, government departments and non-profits. Her doctoral research focused on the importance of connecting management education to the workplace, for which she has created education programmes. She has an PhD in Management Learning, an MA in Organisational Change, an MSc in Training and Performance Management, an MBA, and a BA in German and Russian.
The programme takes place in the Bayle building on the Woudestein Campus of Erasmus University Rotterdam.
