Training In Change Management


Navigating the political landscape and getting buy-in from stakeholders is critical and yet, very difficult. Until now there have been no training programs to help change agents develop their skills in this area.

Heridian is proud to be able to offer a change management training simulation that focuses on precisely this challenge. The simulation places participants in charge of a major change initiative. The participant is required to get buy-in for the change from various stakeholders within a certain time frame.


Who should attend :

Any managers, employees or teams involved in leading a major change initiative

Expected outcomes :

  • Clear identification of key stakeholders and their positions or points of view
  • Improved self-confidence in convincing resistive stakeholders to actively support the change
  • Familiarity in using a range of tools or methods to communicate and convince
  • Using the right levers or tools at the right times, targeted at the most appropriate stakeholder
  • It can be combined with a facilitation process which aims to set up a change team and establish a working methodology and clear objectives

When to  use :

  • At the beginning of any major change initiative
  • Or when a corporate change team is set up.

Duration and format :

  • Either half day or full day.
  • The simulation can be run in teams or individually.
  • The duration can be extended if supplemented with additional non-simulation based training.

Satisfaction guarantee :

Heridian is so confident in the quality of this training that if for any reason a client is not satisfied, we will refund the tuition paid.
