Every client we ever had gets to a point where they have to convince others - peers, subordinates, and their managers - to do things for them. They have to convince people 1:1 and as a group. And the thing we have seen with most of our clients is that even though they accelerate and do pretty well when they're young and they deploy technical skills, at a certain point unless they learn change management, influence, and persuasion skills, they can't operate as leaders.

Why it matters?

  • You must be able to convince others to act.

  • Creating flexible, responsive organizations.

  • Finding and developing creative, innovative people.

  • Building and leveraging intellectual capital.

  • Encouraging and managing continuous change.

Given how big of a topic Change Management is for our clients, we created a Center of Excellence within the Strategy Control Room (within Advanced Level membership) and released 2 significant Batches of materials within the Change Management Center of Excellence:

Our Best Thinking on Change Management - 1,078 SLIDES (Batch 1)


Full Change Management Study - 1,267 SLIDES (Batch 2)


2,345 SLIDES

  • Batch 1 is our best practice for change management.

  • Batch 2 is an actual project, showing you how we used the theory from Batch 1 to deliver a Change Management program to a client.

That's a big thing. That's why we have Centers of Excellence:

We show you a theory and we show an example.


1. Log in to The Strategy Control Room, Advanced Level membership area.

2. See the "CENTER OF EXCELLENCE" dropdown.

3. Select "Change Management Influence/Gravitas (Batch 1)" and "Change Management Influence/Gravitas (Batch 2)".

4. Once you select a particular Batch, for example Batch 1, you will see it is broken down into multiple parts. And each part has multiple documents within that subsection. For example, Batch 1 has 10 subsections. And each subsection has multiple documents within it.

If you are The Strategy Control Room, Advanced Level, member, here is the direct link to this particular update (1,267 + 1,078 = 2,345 SLIDES).

If you joined at an Advanced Level of the Strategy Control Room today, you would find:

  • Michael's explanation slides for selected programs on
