Who are we

We custom design learning like building blocks from our 41 institutes or competence centres, so people can ‘grasp it’ and ‘do it.’

We equip your people and your organisation to execute SUSTAINABLE business transformation at scale to move from INSIGHT ‘grasp it’ to IMPACT ‘do it’. 70% of transformation programs fail! Yet it is predicted that £2.3 trillion will be spent on transformation by 2023 (IDC 2019).

Our team develops programs where talent learns, applies and transforms at the same time. This scales the capabilities of the business and increases the success of the transformation.

We are a multilingual and global custom programmes team. We combine the power of 41 institutes and competence centres, as well as partnerships across our delivery network. The university pioneers research and application to help you achieve impactful change at the individual, team and organisational levels.
