King's Business school has conducted a wide range of executive and professional interventions since our inception in 2017. Listed below are a few examples of our work with a selection of our client base. These examples demonstrate the breadth and range of our expertise and speak to the high-quality outputs and impact that our programmes create.
Our programmes, whether international or domestic, for credit or not for credit, are enthused with two of our guiding principles: they are 'King's Rich', meaning that we ensure that the programme is taught using content informed King's cutting-edge research, and that they are inter-disciplinary, King’s have long recognised that the roots of most global challenges are complex and span academic disciplines. King’s cultivates an interdisciplinary approach with academics bringing expertise in their given fields whilst sharing their expertise to deliver change. This approach takes strength from the whole of King’s College London: creating time, drive, and opportunity to embed transformational learning outcomes.
Leadership for Government Excellence (LGE) was an innovative programme for Egypt’s Ministry of Planning and Economic Development, delivered through a powerful collaboration between King’s College London and the American University of Cairo (AUC).
LGE supported one of the largest and most rapid change initiatives in Egypt’s history and an ambitious Vision 2030 for Egypt’s economic development. King’s and AUC created a programme to challenge the mindsets of 120 leaders from across the breadth of Egyptian government, forging alignment in those driving this essential change agenda, championing, and transforming delivery of public service through modern and efficient operations in the new Administrative Capital. A learning needs analysis carried out in Cairo identified a need to address change at individual, organisational and system levels.
A key deliverable of LGE was providing impact at an organisational level. LGE addressed this by stimulating creativity and innovation with participants working on real projects they can implement in the New Capital. A total of 24 value adding projects were designed during this programme and several projects were approved by their ministries and implemented. The programme created an immediate opportunity to apply frameworks and evaluative methods to their own ministry.
Programme evaluations indicated high levels of satisfaction from participants with improved knowledge, broadened operational thinking in the areas of responsible management within the public-sector, employee engagement, organisations culture, leadership skills. LGE fostered a shared experience and culture of collaboration across Government providing wider understanding and a valuable self-supportive network to bolster participants as they lead change.
King's Health Partners (KHP) is an Academic Health Sciences Centre where world-class research, education and clinical practice are brought together for the benefit of patients. KHP approached King’s Business school to design and delivery a fully asynchronous Healthcare Leadership programme that can be used to support the student body.
The course aims to show participants what it takes to become an effective leader in healthcare. Organising and managing healthcare delivery is a complex undertaking, be it at the national level, at local levels, or at the level of interaction between healthcare professional and patient. Healthcare is usually delivered by large organisations. To enable such large organisations to deliver high-quality care for all, effective leadership is vital at every level.
The course outlines why clinical leadership is important and provides participants with knowledge and understanding of a range of perspectives and theories on leadership and how they apply to the clinical setting.
Key to the delivery requirement was the need for the course to explore some of the contemporary issues within clinical leadership, such as ethics, power, diversity, resilience, leading & managing change, and leading teams. The programme uses a combination of exercises, and activities, plus input from leaders in the real world to encourage reflection on participants leadership practice and to develop their ability to learn from experience, by thinking critically about them.
The United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. King’s Business School was awarded the contract to deliver a large-scale and ambitious leadership development programme addressing up to 400 participants over a potential four-year period to develop the cadre of new and existing leaders within UKAEA.
The scope includes the delivery of a bespoke, high caliber Leadership programme, which reflects the needs of an academic, research-based organization such as UKAEA and a range of consultancy and improvement projects, each of which will have a clear and tangible output.
The programme outcomes link in to support the UKAEA mission to lead the delivery of sustainable fusion energy and maximise the scientific and economic benefit.
The four interconnected strategic goals to deliver on this mission are:
Health Education England (HEE) supports the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.
The context of Leadership and Management within the NHS has never been more challenging as managers and leaders tackle the pressures of a volatile future. In response to this HEE have awarded a contract to King’s Business School that will ensure 70 participants each year are equipped with the tools, knowledge, and confidence to allow them to thrive as both leaders and managers within a volatile environment. It will equip and charge trainees to disseminate this understanding by acquiring the expertise needed to act as leaders, enabling them to deliver leadership and management training to other PGMD trainees and healthcare professionals.
The HEE programme convenes a powerful collaboration from King’s Health Partners (KHP), King’s Business School; the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM) and The King’s Fund to deliver rigour and expertise, clinical insight, and cutting-edge content to tackle the challenges in delivering leadership and management successfully through a specialist intervention.
The key features of this innovative programme fall within four blocks of activity, each of which challenging and updating the common view of the “mini-MBA” by addressing emerging issues and focussing on new skills and adaptability needed for the years ahead, using the breadth of the curriculum to thrive in the current and future context.
King's Business School is working with Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT) in delivering a high-quality asynchronous leadership and professional development programme. This short, three-day executive programme course creates a vital value adding enhancement for healthcare professionals who are attending, and have attended, the globally recognised visiting professionals programme (VPP).
The VPP provides international health care professionals with the unique opportunity to learn, observe and work alongside world leading clinicians. A variety of clinical departments within the Trust offer these programmes (sometimes known as clinical attachments or observerships), which can last anywhere between four weeks to 12 months.
The addition of the leadership and professional development programme enable participants to gain feedback and understanding into themselves and their leadership styles, providing insight and self-awareness. This allows them to better understand what makes an effective leader in healthcare through exposure to different and contemporary approaches to leadership; to articulate their own leadership values and subsequent ability to better make decisions as a leader; and understand the leadership levers for enhancing employee outcomes, linked to team working and quality improvement.
Successful completion of the programme entitles participants entry to King's Executive Education Alumni Association which creates a valuable community of learning and enhances both personal and professional networks.
