Active, focused and designed to deliver.
Change Creation is a programme specifically designed for leaders who have a change or development that will make their organisation more resilient and who know that working together with other like-minded leaders generates amazing results.
Each organisation has helped to develop the curriculum, so whether their change plan involves becoming more financially independent and stable, refreshing strategy and business models, shifting organisational culture, connecting with new audiences, building capacity or attracting alternative finance to fund growth, together we’ve created a curriculum to support their plans and realise lasting change.
Designed and delivered by people make it work, participants are benefiting from insights, processes and tools that have been developed over decades by some of the best change management experts working across international business today.
Change Creation has a hub of leaders at it’s heart – 28 Organisations, 56 Leaders, all creating change in their organisations over the same 2 year period, supported with all the resources we know are needed to deliver change… Research, Consultancy, Action Learning, Leadership Training, Change Management tools, sector expert advice and a great network of leaders who are learning and delivering alongside the cohort. Read more about the programme below.
Expert-led training and skills development
Participants get 34 days of expert training and peer-leadership learning.
Six two-day workshops of collaborative group-based sessions around the country that provide the knowledge, insights, tools and models needed to make the step-changes in each organisation.
22 further days of intensive workshops – the topics and content have been designed in response to the needs of each organisation and led by expert consultants and sector leaders.
Bespoke one-to-one Consultancy and Mentoring
4 days free consultancy. Each organisation is teamed up with a mentor to test and challenge their change plan, with four days of tailored change consultancy. What that support looks like is driven by each organisation whether that is technical advice, business planning support or stakeholder engagement… whatever delivers the most impact.
Tailored research on demand
Our specialist Researcher-in-Residence is gathering evidence and research from across the sector and internationally to support plans, refine thinking, and help to provide access to additional funding or resources.
Business and investment advice
Our programme is about change creation so we don’t stop when organisations are ‘change ready’. We’re helping to build relationships and appetite with funders, investors and potential supporters to ensure that every organisation has multiple funding options to realistically explore during the programme. We are ready to support organisations when they are ready and looking for funds.
Peer Support, Co-coaching, Action Learning
We believe that being part of a close-knit community of peer learning and mutual support is the most powerful part of the programme, harnessing the knowledge and insights of the group, deepening learning, resolving challenges and transforming practice, long term. Change Creation is a network of 56 leaders, who are all ‘change hungry’ with planned changes in their organisation… learning from each others experience and insights, live and direct.
Every organisation receives an automatic £2,000 bursary to help cover the cost of attending sessions and over night stays. In year two there will also be additional small bursaries to help organisations to cover various small costs incurred from being part of the programme.
Digital Learning Hub
This online home for the Change Creation community is where knowledge, resources and ideas flow. Each organisation is sharing their learning, documenting their progress, connecting with other leaders, getting feedback, accessing tools and resources all from their Change Creation tablet.
The Hub enables organisations to stay up to date and get feedback on plans and progress, test creative ideas and approaches through group discussion with peers and support colleagues through action learning sets and co-coaching.
With accessible social media tools, (we’re using the social media tools used daily rather than invent new ones!) the Change Creation cohort is connected with peers, the speakers, facilitators, mentors and consultants beyond the face-to-face sessions, making it easy to track other leaders learning and insights, and get advice all in one place.
The Hub also provides another layer of virtual learning with live Q&As, mini-masterclasses and coaching sessions. Every speaker featured in live workshops offers tailored advice and support in this learning space. We’ve learnt from other virtual spaces internationally to shape one that actually works. With experts on our Advisory Panel including the Director of Google Creative Labs, we know we can create a powerful learning and connecting digital space that will enable learning and provide support.
As you will have noticed, this website is dedicated to an Arts Council England funded two year project called ‘Change Creation’ for arts and cultural organisations, and delivered by people make it work. If you are looking for the limited company called ‘change creation’ run by Trevor Jarrett and Shaun Price and based in Billericay, then please redirect to www.changecreation.co.uk. We get the impression that Trevor and Shaun are nice fellas and have a good team around them, but this link shouldn’t be considered a recommendation, referral or promotion of their company, we’re just being good neighbours and helping you find who you are looking for.
