SIG - Leadership of Organisational Change
The Leadership of Organisational Change Special Interest Group is open to all who are interested and involved in helping organisations cope with the organisational and people implications of change. We explore experiences, skills and techniques in the leadership and management of change. As such it is relevant to those in specialist roles such as Organisational Development, HR and Change Management as well as those in more general line and functional roles.
The aim is to build a collaborative community which identifies, builds and resources a programme of activities, supported and sustained by Henley Business School .
Meeting at the Business School and locations in London, we aim over time, to create a virtual community and set of related experiences and resources. The areas we expect to be within the scope of the special interest group include:
- Building cultures
- Managing programmatic and emergent change
- Organisational design and restructuring
- Leadership and influencing skills needed for success
- Effectively managing barriers and obstacles to change
- Managing ourselves and others through change
By building on each others' experiences and resources, we would aim to enhance our own understanding of change leadership, and develop a community of practitioners and learners.

The Group's Committee
The newly formed committee is charged with arranging and managing up to four events a year. The format of each event is tailored to the subject matter and may well include the opportunity for small groups to discuss relevant topics selected by the committee for feedback to the members either during or after the event. Several committee members will be present at each event. Contact with, and suggestions to, the committee should be made by emailing email@example.com.
The committee will enable a number of working groups to manage the SIG and facilitate discussions amongst its members. The working groups are:
- Web Working Group (John Scott and Ray Atkinson)
- LinkedIn Working Group (Mike Green and Situl Shah)
- Thought Leadership Working Group (Mike Green and Bernd Vogel)
We have created a sub-group of the main Henley Alumni LinkedIn network. Called Leadership of Organisational Change it will act as a forum for discussion, networking and news and complement the main website. Although 'managed' in terms of ensuring that the group runs smoothly and those who want to join are invited in, it is basically a self managing network and new discussions on topics of leadership and change can be started by any member, and likewise contributions made by all. A longer term objective is to use these web pages to collate best practice knowledge as accumulated from the membership.
