Leading Change and Organizational Renewal
Leverage diverse research, proven methodologies, and design thinking for change management in this collaboration between Stanford and Harvard.
Leading Change and Organizational Renewal, led by Stanford GSB’s Charles O’Reilly and Harvard Business School’s Michael Tushman, is packed with thought-provoking curriculum, business-challenge work groups, and a focus on innovation. Offered once per year at each Harvard and Stanford, you’ll learn how to overcome the inertial forces that plague big organizations, and design an ambidextrous organization that can generate streams of innovation.
You’ll put design thinking tools and techniques into action at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design, also known as the d.school. And you’ll leave with an action plan and a toolkit to help you implement real change and empower others in your organization to do the same.
