OceanX Executive Development Program launches with Transformation Management Course

OceanX, the leading enterprise network for seafreight specialists, has started its Executive Development Program. The first module “TRANSFORMATION MANAGEMENT” is organized by Tongji University in cooperation with CPC Consulting and conducted in-class in Shanghai, China. Through a learning journey built along the entire transformation cycle, it will equip participants with the required knowledge, skillset and mindset to lead the transformation in their organization.

From its early beginnings, OceanX identified education, talent development and knowledge sharing as key success factors for the logistics sector. More recently, a study by the German Logistics Association highlighted a lack of skills as crucial issue preventing opportunities in the industry that is facing the demanding task to digitally transform.

Although leaders working in logistics are used to constant change, not least the global coronavirus pandemic has shown that the rules of the game are shifting massively. Companies understand that they either adapt to change or will not participate in the market anymore. Given that according to a Harvard Business School study 70% of change projects fail, skills and attitudes for driving sustainable, impactful transformation are clearly a distinct competitive edge.

Certified TRANSFORMATION MANAGEMENT EXECUTIVES are the candidate of choice when it comes to affecting predictable, measurable and deep change in an international setup. “Based on our commitment to effective people development, we have launched the Executive Development Program and partnered with Tongji University. We can ensure preferred access and favorable rates for our members” explains Ruben Huber, Founder and Director of OceanX. The program is targeted at leaders who know that making a difference requires personal commitment and continuous interdisciplinary learning. Participants are typically in a Senior/Executive role and have over 8 years’ of experience, an intercultural mindset and blend analytical skills with empathy.

The Transformation Management Executive Program enables participants to apply what they learn in the classroom directly back in their workplace, supported by lecturers and peers. Throughout six modules, they will boost their leadership skills to handle organizational dynamics, strengthen assertiveness in driving transformation and change and build proficiency in leading edge tools and methods. In addition, they will be able to deepen their insights into other organizations and build their transformation management peer network.

“I am very excited to launch this program,” shares Michael Babilon-Teubenbacher, CEO of CPC Consulting China, the regional organization of Germany’s leading change management consulting firm. “While the need for transformation was already present for many businesses in China before COVID-19, the crisis has often made transformation unavoidable. From automotive to automotive supply to healthcare to insurance to logistics and beyond, leaders are in the process of rethinking their business for enhancing resilience and finding new ways to leverage opportunities. This is exactly where I see the Transformation Management Executive program as a building block for getting yourself and your top-leaders ready for en environment that requires executives who thrive in times of uncertainty, driving impactful people-centric change.”
