Senior Leaders – Southampton

12 November, 2019 - Southampton

This one-day workshop focuses on the challenges facing ICT senior leaders today. You know the organisation needs to work differently to achieve business-outcomes through emerging technology. However, many organisations expect ICT to deliver in the same old way, managing and driving change programmes in a silo.

Critical to your success in this rapidly evolving world, is your ability to change perception and influence peers across the business to foster a collaborative approach to leading IT-centric business change.

​This workshop gives you practical tools and techniques to help drive the cultural change you need to enable the best business focused outcomes.

This is a practical workshop where we will share relevant insights and discuss the implications in your context.

We use case studies based on real examples and we will draw on the wisdom in the room.

You will participate in an interactive exercise that highlights various organisational perspectives.

​The topics we will link into include:

  • Influencing and negotiation skills
  • Stakeholder management
  • Driving cultural change; working together to achieve transformation
  • Collaborative leadership
  • Communication preferences
  • Communicating business outcomes and risk
  • Managing change effectively
  • Responsibility assignment (RACI)
  • Prioritisation of work programmes to deliver results
  • During the workshop, you will use a stakeholder management toolkit.

​Leaders who undertake a Senior Leaders course have the chance to share their thinking and learning together. Members will have the opportunity to actively contribute to the alumni network through sharing and presenting their work, participating in learning opportunities and supporting colleagues who are participating in the workshop.
