The HR & Strategic Change Executive Programme (Live Online)

The HR & Strategic Change Executive Programme (Live Online)
June 22nd, 2022

Overview

Why attend this programme?

Our world is changing, and human resource management must co-evolve. HR professionals need to become culture managers, who don’t just manage people as a resource, but pro-actively create the conditions for their success and that of the business. 

Purpose, digitalisation, hybrid work, employee experience and supply chain relationships have, or will soon become part of the HR agenda. 

This highly practical and interactive programme reviews how to best tackle the key strategic change challenges that (will) present themselves to the HR community.

This insight will help you ensure your next HR agenda contributes where it matters most.

Who should attend?

  • Senior HR executives who want to update themselves on the extended role of human resource management in strategic change.
  • Business leaders who want to ensure their strategies and programmes are supported by the people in their business. 

The programme is delivered in English. Participants must have a good level of spoken business English to be actively involved in all aspects of the programme.

How will you benefit?

After this programme, you will be in a better position to help your business:

  • get higher engagement, motivation and results by better engaging your employees with your company’s purpose.
  • create and implement a humane and technology positive roadmap to your companies ‘future of work’. 
  • craft an employee experience that attracts, engages and retains the best talent in a way that furthers your company’s objectives
  • capture new opportunities and reduce operating risks by harmonising the HR practices in your ecosystem. 

During the programme, you will:

Programme Details

What will you learn and practice?

DAY 1 (AM): The role of HR in strategic change
In a world where change has become a constant, HR’s role has evolved from managing human resources to creating a company culture that is willing, skilled, and able to continuously evolve.
We kick off the programme with a discussion on:

  • The key strategic challenges for HR between today and 2025.
  • The myths and realities of successful corporate transformation.
  • The role of HR in ‘making change happen’.

DAY 1 (PM): Engaging people with purpose and profit
A sense of purpose drives employee engagement, loyalty, performance, and profit. But organisational life often prevents your people do what is right. Assuming they can translate your abstract company purpose into actions that are relevant to their job. 
In this session we help you reconcile people, purpose, and profit.

  • How purpose can drive motivation, profit, and company value.
  • Connecting purpose to employee and leadership passion (start with who before why).
  • Making an abstract purpose tangible for your people.
  • Creating and implementing a roadmap for purpose-driven transformation.
  • Measuring the impact of your purpose efforts on engagement, behaviour and culture
  • How to position HR as the business partner for engagement through purpose.

In this session, you will self-assess your company’s current performance and prototype a first version ‘purpose canvas’ for your business. This you can take home for iteration and improvement. 

DAY 2 (AM): Hybrid work & digital transformation
Due to Covid-19, the future of hybrid work arrived quicker than any of us imagined. With artificial intelligence, robotics, and other technologies to come, continuous digital transformation will be a way of life. This means we need to evolve the way we manage the humans in our business.
In this session is about imagining your company’s future of work in a way that is humane and tech-positive: 

  • Scoping the hybrid work and digital transformation challenge.
  • Road mapping your company’s future of work.
  • How to create a technology positive culture.
  • Making digital transformation ‘human-centric’.
  • Measuring the impact of changed working practices on engagement and culture.
  • How to position HR at the technology table.

In this session, you will self-assess your company’s current performance and prototype first actions to address the human/tech and hybrid work challenges in your business. This you can take home for iteration and improvement. 

DAY 2 (PM): the employee experience
Today’s talent wants more than a stable job and a pension scheme. Today’s companies need to continuously adapt to an uncertain and changing world. A well-considered employee experience may be an answer to both challenges. 
In this session helps you balance employee and company needs in a one employee experience:

  • How the right employee experience creates engagement and business results.
  • Mapping and managing all stages of the employee journey.
  • Reimagine the office experience for the new reality of work 
  • Getting different leadership levels to support the employee experience.
  • How to measure and demonstrate the impact of an ‘upgraded’ employee experience. 
  • How to position HR as the employee experience ‘maker’ of the business.

In this session, you will self-assess your company’s current performance and prototype a first employee experience framework for your business. This you can take home for iteration and improvement. 

DAY 3 (AM): managing the human ecosystem
While they may not be employed by your business, the people working throughout your supply chain are also part of your company’s ‘human resources’. Actively managing them and their performance can add value to your business and reduce risks.
In this session, we’ll therefore cover: 

  • Challenges and opportunities in eco-system HR.
  • Mapping your company’s human eco-system priorities. Big bets and small wins.
  • How to position HR as a partner in purchasing and supply chain management.

In this session, you will self-assess your company’s current performance and prototype first steps to map and add value to your company’s eco-system.

DAY 3 (PM): YOUR role in strategic change
Discussions and frameworks can enlighten. Actions are better. So, in the last section of HR & Strategic Change we discuss how you can leverage the insights of the various days for your business. 
In this final session, we will:

  • Consolidate your self-assessments and prototypes into a personal, prioritised action plan.
  • Peer-discuss your expected challenges and opportunities for acceleration.

FAQ

ABOUT MCE’S LIVE ONLINE PROGRAMMES

What are MCE’s Live Online programmes?

MCE’s “Live Online” programmes, powered by AMA, are live, interactive, trainer-led courses that are completely user-friendly and accessible from your office or home PC. They’re the perfect time-saving alternative when you want training but can’t get away from the office. Live online sessions use Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology and Adobe® Flash® Player which means facilitator and participants communicate over the internet using a USB Headset with microphone to speak and listen to each other during the sessions.

 

Who facilitates MCE’s Live Online programmes?

A member of our expert faculty of business professionals will lead your programme. Beyond our course leaders’ experience in business training, they are specially trained to present our high-quality content in an engaging, live online format.

 

What will I do during the Live Online sessions?

During the Live Online sessions, you will interact with the facilitator and with other participants using voice (VoIP) and text-based chat, as well as a range of sophisticated, yet easy to use, audience participation tools such as polls, whiteboard, etc.

Throughout the programme, you will engage in discussions and experiential activities based on realistic workplace scenarios, including practical exercises and role play in breakouts, as well as individual and group debriefs.

During the breakout exercises, you will have a unique opportunity to discuss challenges and apply skills in concrete practical situations, while receiving significant feedback from others.

 

What are the technical requirements for my computer?

The sessions are delivered via an Internet Explorer browser session using Adobe Acrobat Connect. Internet Browser and other technical requirements are available by clicking here.

 

Why can’t I join on a tablet or mobile phone?

Using a desktop or laptop computer is required in order to experience all the features and interactions during the programme. We strongly recommend against using tablets or mobile phones. Click here to check the technical requirements for your computer.

 

Can I join on Wi-Fi?

We strongly recommend joining the sessions through a wired internet connection. Please note that Wi-Fi, Blue tooth and mobile wi-fi are all unstable and cause a deteriorated experience not only for the affected participant, but for the entire group as well, including audio drop, disconnection from the rooms and delays in the interaction.

 

Why do I need a headset?

An appropriate computer headset with built-in microphone is required in order to attend Live Online sessions. A headset with a microphone will allow you to hear and be heard comfortably. Connecting with the computer’s built-in audio may create echoes affecting the whole group experience, therefore we strongly recommend against it.

Your headset should have the following characteristics:

  • USB connection, with plug-and-play capability (i.e., with the software driver included)
  • A built-in microphone with noise-cancelling capabilities
  • Clear digital stereo headphone audio

A good indication that a headset will perform well for our Live Online sessions is a “designed for videoconferencing” or “designed for Skype” label. An example of a headset which has been found to work well with our Live Online programmes is the Logitech h340.

Several colleagues are attending this programme at the same time, can we all join together from the same room/computer?

Because of the various interactions taking place during the session, it is important that each individual participant joins the session on a separate computer, and from a separate room. In order to provide the best possible experience for all participants, we also strongly recommend that you sit in a quiet environment with no background noise (please try to avoid open space work areas).

 

What do I need to do in order to connect to the sessions?

We want you to feel completely comfortable and ready to go, so we’ll email you before your scheduled course and give you all the information you need about the simple set-up process.

 

What are the interactive features used during Live Online programmes?

You’ll be able to speak to and/or electronically communicate with the facilitator and other attendees. You can also share files, view the facilitator’s desktop, ask questions, tell the facilitator to speak louder, softer, slow down, etc. (through simple icons). You’ll see what your facilitator is writing, view and hear questions and comments from other attendees, and be able to work in subgroups.  A headset is required for optimal communication throughout the Live Online programme.

 

How far in advance do I need to register for a Live Online programme?

The earlier the better.  That way, you’ll have time to acquire your headset before the first lesson and have plenty of time to do any pre-work, downloading, pre-assessments, etc., that your programme might require. In order to experience the Live Online programme to its fullest, we recommend you register no later than one week before Lesson One.

 

I registered for a Live Online programme; why haven’t I heard from you?

After you register, we will always email you to confirm your registration and provide you with additional information before your first lesson. Occasionally, however, customers may not receive the emails because of their company’s email security settings, a spam blocker, or an incorrect email address. If you registered but didn’t get your confirmation email the day after registration, or an email with your access to the AMA Learning Portal, or your system readiness check email, please notify MCE Client Services at +32 2 543 21 20 immediately. We will make sure you have everything you need before your programme.

 

Will I get a certificate at the end of the programme?

After successful completion of the programme, participants will be awarded a Certificate. In order to qualify for this certificate, participants must register for and attend the programme using their individual log-in ID for the entire duration of the sessions. Speaking in the sessions via individual VoIP connection and participating in all of the chat, polling, and breakout exercises is required. Archived recordings or groups attending through one computer/connection do not qualify for the certificate.

 

What level of English do I need to take part in an MCE Live Online programme?

MCE’s participants come from over 90 different countries but all of our open enrolment programmes are run in English. You need to have a good working knowledge of English to be able to fully participate in the programme and engage in various interactions with other participants. If you have difficulty understanding these questions, the programme might be difficult for you too.

 

Security and Data Privacy

  • Each participant uses a unique, system-generated Login ID via Internet email.
