This course, jointly developed by Business in the Community (BITC) and Cranfield University, will give those attending the tools needed to get traction on a company’s responsible business programme.

Module objectives:

At the end of this module, attendees will:

  • know how to recognise their organisational context and the related enablers and barriers to implementing change for responsible business
  • understand which tools to use to drive change
  • be able to identify the change their corporate responsibility program is trying to create, how to prioritise issues and manage change projects
  • understand how to effectively drive change from their position in the organisation,

Delegate organisations will benefit from:

  • a bespoke action plan for initiating a specific change program for corporate responsibility
  • more effective identification and delivery of financial, social and environmental goals
  • a more efficient and effective approach to integrating corporate responsibility.

Module outline

  • Understanding your change context: evaluating your organisation’s corporate responsibility (CR) maturity and values, the specific issues you face, and your own skills and capabilities.
  • Using change management for corporate responsibility: what changes are required to integrate CR, and what enablers, obstacles and drivers exist. Special attention is given to driving change from a position of limited authority.
  • Change management tools and techniques: how to use them to provide a clear case for change, overcome obstacles and leverage enablers.
  • Managing change: how to break down your initiative into manageable parts, continuous communication, conflict management, key performance indicators and timelines.
  • Company guest speaker: a speaker from a leading company which has undergone successful change will present their approach to corporate responsibility and managing change.

Who should attend?

The course is designed for anyone with responsibility for integrating and embedding aspects of corporate responsibility within their organisation. They may be a responsible business manager or have responsibility for a specific aspect of responsible business. Their job is to drive change through the organisation to increase financial, social and environmental performance. The course assumes a basic level of responsible business knowledge.
