Program Overview

3 Fundamental Skills

With the Leading Strategic Change programme you get five days of concentrated teaching in an international learning environment at INSEAD. You are challenged and inspired by some of the world’s leading teachers.

Leading Strategic Change INSEAD is an intensive training program for executives and senior executives who want to become better at implementing ambitious strategy execution and transformation projects.

You will get inspiration, insight, knowledge and tools that will enable you to bring your company’s strategy execution initiatives and transformation projects to a high and ambitious level.
The program will give you the latest knowledge in strategy, strategy execution and transformation.


The first day gives you insight into how to effectively break down a strategy into value-creating initiatives for the relevant levels of the organization. In addition, you will gain knowledge about how to handle resistance to change.


On the second day of the program, you are introduced to a holistic model for self-evaluation of the organization’s readiness for strategy execution generated from a bottom-up process. You will be able to develop strategic initiatives involving all levels of the organization.


On day three, we will look more closely at the hidden barriers associated with the strategy execution. It is, among other things, about how to identify the hidden barriers and diagnose these, whether of a cultural, political or emotional nature – and of course how to overcome these barriers.



On the fourth day of the program you will be introduced to a model for how an organizational culture arises and which sources stimulate the development of culture. In addition, we will look more closely at how to achieve a culture of change.


The final day of the program will deal with how to activate both the formal and the informal networks within and outside the organization. Indeed, new strategic initiatives will often require these networks to be mobilized. The day will also offer insight into how to make its influence applicable at organizational, team and individual levels.


You will subsequently have access to the Executive Forum, which is a forum for former participants in our programs. Through 4 annual Masterclasses you will receive relevant knowledge that makes sense for your strategic and managerial work – Masterclasses are facilitated by recognized professors from INSEAD and IMD.
