New frontiers for development

An action-learning journey for organisational and personal development

The learning takes place over a period of 8-12 months, with three face-to-face modules and linked remote work. It is an opportunity for personal growth and development as well as a way of cultivating resilience and critical thinking for dealing with rapidly complex change processes.

Module 1: Macroeconomic challenges: Introduces participants to new economic thinking in relation to key economic issues and provides techniques to critically review these issues.

Module 2: Effective organisations in the face of macro level challenges: Uncovers the assumptions, both personal and organisational, which lie behind every intervention in development and opens a debate on how to deal with complexity from an organisational leadership perspective.

Module 3: Effective leaders in a complex world: An opportunity to learn and experience the process of becoming an effective leader within your organisation in the face of macro level challenges.
