As organizations are increasingly using formal education to support organizational renewal and change, institutions for higher education face the challenge of providing industry with education that not only teaches participants new concepts and new skills, but also provides them with the motivation and the commitment to implement what has been learned in their daily work. In this paper, the authors present twelve key success factors for designing education programmes for organizational transformation. Two requisites for the successful implementation of these success factors are also identified: a true partnership between the client firm and the education provider, and a pivotal role for the course manager.
