Leading Strategic Growth and Change is a five-day program focused on the process of finding opportunities, launching new ventures, and leading necessary organizational changes to revitalize an organization.

If you have ever worried about how to drive new growth or how to make a change initiative successful, you will enjoy the insights developed in this course.

Alumni and up to four of their colleagues are eligible for a 25 percent tuition benefit for programs lasting up to seven days.
Benefits in the Current Context
"This program is more relevant than ever, because it presumes high levels of uncertainty, complexity, and velocity in every tool and technique we present. It further covers both the analytical side of coping with uncertainty (what to do) as well as the human side (how to get people to realize the challenges and respond appropriately). In this program, we insist on driving strategic decision-making from the perspective of deep insight and differentiating rather than going along with the crowd. And at Columbia, since we are in the heart of the financial markets, we are very close to the phenomenon."
–Rita Gunther McGrath, faculty director
