“Ashridge works in partnership to design learning and development that is relevant and makes a tangible impact on the organization.” Katarina Morger Wargsjo, Program Director, Tetra Pak
Ashridge Executive Education is a world leader in working with organizations to develop management and leadership potential, bring about change, and address specific business challenges. We take pride in helping people and organizations to be the best that they can be. We work in partnership with the world's leading business organizations in tackling the complex challenges they face, such as formulating and implementing strategic development, leadership, culture and change.
Four things help us stand out:
1) We are different as we have our own organizational development consulting practice. We blend organization development and change work with leadership and management development. Our programs are never designed in isolation from the business situation. Enabling participants to develop sustainable change within an organization is central to the way we work.
2) Our research into learning transfer and neuroscience informs the design of our programs to ensure that the experience results in real, long-lasting change at both the participant and organizational level.
3) Our faculty have real business experience at senior leadership level, combined with their academic credentials. They understand the challenges and realities of, for example, implementing strategy, of creating high performance, and of working in complex, multi-cultural environments.
4) Our approach to working with leaders and managers is based on our understanding that people engage best when they are active and participating and when the business context is prominent. Our approach is highly pragmatic and experiential.
Our international work, reach and standing:
Ashridge works with over 850 organizations every year, meaning that our expertise and knowledge of current business and industry challenges is exceptional. Our Faculty have worked with so many different organizations and understand critical contextual variation across industries and business models. 70% of clients are headquartered outside the UK and 25% beyond Europe. Add to this the real business experience of our Faculty, having worked in industry and grappled with business challenges themselves, and the result is an approach to business education that is truly valuable for our clients.
