EDP in Leadership and Change Management

EDP in Leadership and Change Management

Course Overview

Course Details

The pace of change in organizations has increased manifold in recent times. Improvement in processes, structures, systems are often being attempted with an objective of achieving better efficiency and effectiveness. However, it is known that most change initiatives fail to achieve their desired objectives. One of the reasons for the failure is lack of skills among managers driving the change. While training their managers, organizations usually consider leadership development and developing skills for managing change as separate challenges. Although most organizations train for leadership development, training for managing change is not given due importance. CEB Corporate Leadership Council in a study conducted in 2016, surveyed more than 300 HR leaders and found that only 5% organizations have talent management processes that are helping employees adapt to change and only 21% organizations are unable to initiate change as soon as the need arises. Therefore, building change management expertise is a key focus of organizations today. Also, most of these trainings are focused on senior managers than middle managers. We strongly believe that if change programs are to succeed, there has to be able managers at each level with a know-how of leadership and change management concepts, tools and techniques. Hence, leadership development and change management training should ideally go hand-in-hand if organizations want to be more effective. Trained managers in Leadership and Change also have a better chance of career advancement as they are more successful than others in handling managerial tasks and in managing change. This program will offer insight into concepts and applications of leadership and change management with an emphasis on learning knowledge, skills and values. The program intends to be participative with a lot of reflections/assessments into one’s own style of leadership and change management, thus, providing opportunities to identify specific areas of improvement. The primary objectives of our course include,
  • Practical insights to Leadership and Change
  • Assess your own leadership styles
  • Build leadership competencies to manage real life problems
  • Evaluate your change strategies with the Harvard Change Management Simulation
  • Work along on an assignment to co-create innovative solutions (to a problem in your organization) with the help of other participants

This has been one of my best learning experiences. It has got me to appreciate business management in a better way.The teaching faculty have been brilliant, the TA’s have been approachable and helpful throughout the course and I would rate this course a 10 on 10 when its gauged against other similar courses offered.I have been interacting with the students who are from the other institutes at our Hughes center and I have learnt that none of those courses have the rigor that PGCBM demands. This is something I appreciate about the PGCBM course as this has forced us to study and work hard towards achieving a good grade albeit at a cost. The cost is the toll it has taken in managing the work and personal life as the course has been heavy and requires a focused study of a good 2-3 hours every day on an average. But I believe if it was not so then there would not have been any learning. With regards to the campus component I felt it was brilliantly organized and the effort put in by the VIL team is commendable. The faculty was superb, the accommodation was excellent and the food was an absolute treat.

I thank the entire XLRI team for this and hope to be associated with the XLRI family in the years to come.
Mr. Darshan Krishnamurthy – PGCBM 26

I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU…. for all that you all did when we were on campus.I wish we as HR, can be to our employees what you were to us in that week.It was one of the most hectic week but I loved every bit of it. If another week of campus stay is announced, I will register without a thought! Everything was almost perfect. Hearing, knowing of and admiring XLRI is different from experiencing it. In one word, I lived the most inspiring week of my life in Jamshedpur! Thanks again for everything.
Ms. Anindita Dey – PGCHRM 19

I am very proud to be an alumnus of the great institution ‘XLRI’ that has produced some of the greatest leaders in various fields. To have been taught by the professors at XLRI who are great academicians and who guide many global companies to drive their strategies was indeed a sought-after experience. I am very proud to have been a part of XLRI where students are not just students but managers, strategists and leaders in the making. Being an alumnus of XLRI where values and patriotism are omnipresent even today is one of my biggest achievements.
Ms. Rudrani Nalubolu – PGCHRM-14

I am proud to say that XLRI is my alma mater, and extremely happy to have done so well in the course. The best part about the VIL courses is the quality of teaching – we interact with the finest minds in the subject, and the intellectual stimulation that comes out of classroom discussions is simply mind blowing. I will always remember this one year as one of the most valuable years of my life.
Ms. Pushpa Jagadeesan – PGCHRM-13

I have had a wonderful experience as a student of the program and have learned a lot from my professors and fellow students. There are many options available in the education market to continue your education as a professional. However, the experience, exposure and access to years of research in the field of HR cannot even come close to what one can find at XLRI. Being a part of this institution makes me stand apart in the crowd and to believe in what I stand for as an HR professional. I am proud to call myself an XLRI alumnus and it is my honor to be one.
Godfrey Mitchell – PGCHRM-12

Cheers!!!. Thanks a ton. Its just the beginning…

Vibha Natraj – PGCHRM-20

Wonder why something happens suddenly in our life? Explore not. It’s the lord who connects the dot. Such was the amazing experience when I first came to know about XLRI course. I had a quick glimpse of all the details, and thought why cannot I join this? After working for Indian Air force, for seventeen long years, I made up my mind to be an HR person, so that I can render my long term of experience so far to the organization, where I could get an opportunity to work.
The XLRI PGCHRM -21 courses gave me an extreme outlook, to enhance my HR skills to a large extent. The journey from day one was fantastic. It created a platform for getting to know each other, from different parts of the country. Each XLRI’an had many stories to share and learning experiences. In spite of all the hurdles faced by me professionally & personally during the course completion, I made it a point to succeed in all the areas of assessment. Now, a person with many master degrees in hand, feel proud and happy to say that XLRI has great impact on my career. Now after having so much of learning experience, I had been successful in dealing with many issues in my organization.
I should definitely quote here, an HR person deals with human resources, the most challenging task. It requires really great skill and learning. And I believe, XLRI has rendered me those skills. Now when I look back, I feel my quick judgement of enrolling myself in XLRI then was really a great decision.

I found the course extremely useful for working executives like me. The course coverage was exhaustive with all contemporary issues covered at length. The course pedagogy that included quizzes, assignments, mid-term and end-term exams, ensured that along with conceptual learning we also mastered the application of such concepts in real life situations. It was indeed a privilege to learn from the hugely experienced faculty, most of whom shared deep insights from the corporate world, which made our learning more practical and useful.In order to make the programme even more useful, I would like to suggest the following:
Presently, the immersion programme at XLRI campus is for a week during the entire duration of the programme. This needs to be conducted twice (a total of two weeks) during the programme. Such ‘face-to face’ interaction with the faculty is particularly helpful in having a better grasp of such courses/topics as Labour Laws, IR&PM, Collective Bargaining, Social Research Methods, etc.
On the whole, it was a great learning and enriching experience for me as a professional. I shall continue to have fond memories of the wonderful time spent in the classroom and campus with professors and co-students alike!
Arup Kumar – 26th March, 2017

Thank you all so so much for making our stay in the campus super comfortable and a memorable one. We are back at our work stations loaded with funtastic memories and friendships to be cherished forever.
Thank you all once again.
Ms. Srimoyee Basu – PGCBM 26

Campus Component was most wonderful event and it was an experience for lifetime.I never imagined myself as a student again attending classroom lectures. This was possible because of the Campus Component. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality during our stay.
Mr. Santosh Pawaskar – PGCBM 26

Though it was a VIL platform, but I didn’t observe any lack of quality in the teaching pedagogy. Faculty was always approachable. Studying through this platform was the same as studying at college.
