How we work
Custom Programmes at Saïd Business School create powerful transformational experiences that lead to lasting change and shape the future.
We draw on the best of Oxford, offering a global perspective, access to leading-edge research, and an approach to learning that is modelled on Oxford University’s tradition of individual tutorial, debate and intellectual rigour.
Our practice-based faculty and associates bring deep knowledge of the creative learning processes needed to drive change and improvement.
We specialise in working with large and complex organisations in the development and execution of their strategic agenda. With over 40 years’ experience in delivering executive education for international business, governments, and major public sector bodies, we know that each requires unique interventions to address their particular challenges and opportunities.
All our programmes are:
- Designed to Inspire – creating the energy and emotional commitment to drive change
- Informed by Insight – bringing new perspectives on the internal and external context in which you operate
- Delivered in Partnership – we work with you as co-creator and strategic advisor and ensure that your organisational needs drive the design and development of your programme at each stage of the process.
Collaborating for success
We work in close collaboration with you to co-design, co-develop and co-deliver customised learning.
Our deep and substantive understanding of your business, culture, strategy, and learning goals informs every step of this process.
We help you to craft learning experiences to develop your executives as well as the organisations they lead. Our programmes take a wide variety of formats:
- Workshops to help your Board members develop their strategic agenda
- Programme architectures with multi-modular blended learning to build skills and drive change
- Experiential events to develop deep personal insight and leadership capabilities
- Action learning and business projects to deliver impact back in the organisation
- One-on-one coaching support
- Master-classes on specific strategic topics
- Alumni events and programme follow-up
Our primary goal is to ensure that learning is translated into action and delivers value back in the business.
Our dedicated custom programmes team provide a world-class service, and are always on hand to advise you on how you can create a powerful and transformative learning experience for your senior executives.
