Five days of face-to-face training and development with other change leaders and consultants. For in-house programs, this can include others from your project team, or from across your organization.

You will apply your course learnings directly to your projects and gain insight from discussing others’ project work. There will be lectures, project application work and lively group discussions, guided by a participant manual and your facilitators. You will access the CLRM online on your own computer to learn how to navigate its breadth of resources and focus on those that are immediately relevant to your project.
