Details about the program

All sectors of the economy are undergoing unprecedented transformation. The need for speed and flexibility has never been greater. As companies navigate the uncertain waters towards the next normal, leaders must lead through change in faster, nimbler ways. The future of the business depends on it.

The virtual edition of our Nimble Change Leadership™ program is as intense, unmatched and impactful as in person. Both are powered by our highly immersive STEP UP!™ Game – a competitive simulation that feels all too real.

Participants will:

  • Embrace 5 critical mindset shifts for the age of digital disruption
  • Learn the essentials of the ORCHANGO Method for nimble change leadership
  • Apply unique tools and techniques – in both the virtual classroom and their real world (between sessions)

Bottom line: nimble change leadership for the new / next normal.

Compete to come out on top by tackling widespread resistance and internal politics.

STEP UP!™ is a facilitated learning board game (“serious game”) for organizations faced with uncertainty, fast-paced change and digital disruption.

The simulation challenges competing teams to take on a tricky digital transformation. The objective is to successful pivot a major business of Korbus Global – an international B2B company. There are plenty of obstacles, internal politics and twists that simulate the real world. How will the players pull it off?

The characters and dynamics in STEP UP!™ are based on a real-life business scenario. Players learn how to apply the ORCHANGO Method while drawing parallels with their own real-world challenges.

The result is a learning experience that threads nimble change leadership into the players’ “DNA” and the organization’s culture.

Testimonial on LinkedIn by program participant Tim LeBlanc

I have been fortunate to attend two different ORCHANGO courses. Both provided exceptional, unique and practical insights and tools that proved to be immediately valuable after I left the classroom. Edmond’s experience and energy, combined with the ORCHANGO methodology provided an unmatched training experience. I have since encouraged several staff members to participate in the Nimble Change Leadership program to foster their professional development, and in turn, improve our team’s organizational effectiveness.

Very engaging and interactive. NOT BORING!!

It was a refreshing new way to look at change leadership. I enjoyed the simulation to reinforce the concepts.

It was great to experience a highly interactive program virtually. It made the experience feel a little more “normal” in light of having to connect remotely so often.

The live-virtual version was very good [this leader had previously experienced STEP UP!™ in person]. In some aspects it was better! Very good content. So much that can apply to my daily work.

Very engaging, practical, informative and fun. I LOVED the facilitation, the passion, the energy.

As a member of the winning team, how could it be anything but excellent! Seriously, the educational content was terrific.

This program is very engaging and fast paced. If you are looking for a course that will keep your attention and get you really thinking of your real life experience. This is it!

Relevant content. Engaging presenter. Impactful tools.

This is truly the most engaging, value-packed program I’ve participated in. The tools I’ve walked away with are ones that I’ll use daily in my career going forward.
