Leading Change™ Implementing change is at the core of business success. We know that the human aspects of a change project should be treated in the same way as the technical or mechanical aspects, but this is often where it fails.

Indigo’s Leading Change™ simulation gives participating teams a chance to “live” the challenges of managing an organisational change initiative. The one-day simulation is based on a comprehensive model of how and why human beings react to change: i.e. a range of commercial, personal, emotional and ‘political’ factors. Based around a scenario of planning the integration of two organisations after a merger, the team based simulation challenges teams to decide a series of integration options (e.g. staff reduction, IT systems, integration and policy changes) that have different cost saving and revenue growth implications. Teams have to manage the human reactions to the change, and it is the careful balance of these business and human (hard and soft) factors which determines the final success of the initiative. The simulation was developed in conjunction with Maurizio Zollo when he was an Associate Professor at INSEAD.

“The great thing is to be able to use the simulation and get participants to become actively involved in solving problems and getting more real hands on experience; what I really value is that they take away with them a real life experience” Ashridge Management School

Workshop Benefits: 1

We develop skills by “doing” then reflecting


Mistakes in simulations don’t cost anything


You receive honest and immediate feedback about your actions


It’s innovative, highly interactive and engaging


Discovering is more powerful than “being told”


It actually changes behaviour


There aren’t necessarily any perfect “right answers” and that’s realistic
