Embedding Change – Delivering Value from Knowledge and Learning

We know that all too often knowledge and learning initiatives fail to deliver the intended value, even when the opportunity and benefits seem clear and you have a well-constructed project plan.   Whatever you are working on, there will be practical insights and food for thought for you to take away from the day to help you make your programmes and initiatives more effective and really make a difference to the organisation. 

We have a great line up of contributors, with Chris Collison opening the day by explaining how to establish effective communities of practice and then to use these to sustain change. Later, Ian Rodwell from the law firm Linklaters will also be explaining how they are using storytelling to reinforce desired behaviours and develop new thinking.  Esther Cameron and Mike Green will lead an interactive workshop session that outlines the essential qualities of leaders in times of change and allows you to self-assess your own strengths and weaknesses. Through several case studies they show how the qualities support effective and long-lasting change.

Embedding change has been a focus of Forum research for the past eighteen months and a working group of Forum members have been tracking the progress of several initiatives in their organisations to see what works and what doesn’t. Dr Christine van Winkelen and Wendy Jordan will be revealing our conclusions and recommendations at this event, with workshop activities to help you translate the findings back to what you need in your organisation.   As we conclude this research project,  Dr Sharon Varney, Henley Forum Director will lead a session to explore current challenges facing members to highlight the themes that will be most valuable for you in future Forum meetings and research projects.  View full draft agenda.
