The overall aim of this collection of stackable modules is to equip participants with an understanding of Transformational Strategy (TS) which involves “radical changes in how members perceive, think and behave at work”.

The Bronze, Silver and Gold stackable modules will provide an overview and explanation of a number of diagnostic frameworks related to transformational strategy and support students in learning how to apply these frameworks via a series of case studies at organisational and sectoral level.

Who is this for?

  • Leaders and middle managers who wish to understand or implement transformational change within their organisations and manage the challenges that come with it.


  • If you choose to study past our Bronze, Silver and Gold badges, minimum criteria for the Postgraduate Award is an English language speaking IELTS score of 6.5.

How you will study

Our modules are fully stackable and self-paced, so you choose how much you want to learn and when.

Available stacks

  • Bronze: 4 hours online, access anytime
  • Silver: 6 hours online, access anytime
  • Gold: 10 hours live online cohort based learning (live dates are every four months, split across two half-days at times to suit many global time-zones)

Our stacks offer reflection activities throughout which we suggest you allow additional time for, this is at your pace but our guidance is up to 8 hours for Bronze and up to 12 hours for Silver. This is your opportunity to apply your new knowledge and reflect on the impact it can have on you in your current and future roles.
