How to navigate change with data science

  • Are you curious to quantify the impact of our change activities?
  • Are you eager to explore how to make your initiatives even more effective?

Next date:

  • July 22nd - 25th 2019 in Munich

Main instruction language is English, while individual coaching can also be held in German. 

Short description

The successful configuration and orchestration of change processes is one of the most complex tasks in people leadership and organizational transformation: How can we determine whether our change initiative is successful? What are appropriate KPIs? Is it even possible to measure intangible factors, such as employee engagement, leadership effectiveness, or corporate culture? 

Integrating a solid evaluation process from the very beginning is essential to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of every change initiative. Being able to assess, quantify, and visualize its impact not only shows whether the activities reach their desired outcomes, but also provide concrete insights on where to re-calibrate to maximize their success.

In this interactive master class, two researchers will guide you through an entire evaluation process: from questionnaire design to data analytics and visualization. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to work on your own project and receive individual coaching.
