Classroom Dates
27 - 31 May 2024

This Energy Training Centre training course will equip the participants to make existing energy and environmental management systems more useful to support strategic business changes towards sustainability. It will provide tools to help understand the system dynamics of their organisations, to provide better support for strategic decision making and to implement change with more confidence in successful outcomes. It will enable to think differently about the challenges of “unsustainability”, to identify and respond to risks, and contribute to change programme to ensure long term business prosperity in a changing world. 

It introduces participants to the Transition Engineering and Innovation discipline, the engineering discipline and process that enables organisations to adapt to changing forward operating environment. This transition engineering training course enables operational staff and engineers to support the process from start to finish. At the start, it will enable participants to provide data that supports decision makers, and it will enable them to implement strategic change programmes into day to day energy and environmental management systems. This Better Energy Management with Transition Engineering training course will equip the participants to deal confidently with “wicked problems” that have many complex interacting factors, no obvious simple solution, and many potentially conflicted stakeholders.

At the end of this training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Collect and interpret data on system dynamics to support strategic decision makers
  • Ask the right questions, challenge unstated assumptions, define better metrics
  • Understand the operational aspects of the Transition Engineering discipline
  • Advise and support strategic decision makers on the implementation of change programmes
  • Contribute to corporate change towards sustainability by “thinking differently”


This training course includes various techniques to maximise understanding, retention and ability to apply the learning, including a course manual, suggested reading, presentations, individual and group exercises, video and group discussion.

It will be interactive and will challenge the participants to “think differently” about “sustainability” and about their part in delivering the strategic direction of their organisation. This will guide the participants to apply the learning, and their understanding of their own organisations.

Organisations will be better prepared to prosper in a changing future, based on: 

  • Better tools to understand how the organisation works within the wider operating environment 
  • The ability to see the future with clarity where there is obscurity
  • The ability to support decisions with good data to replace a vague trust in “business as usual”
  • The ability to implement a robust DIRECTION of future business strategy
  • The ability to improve the existing capacity for designing and implementing change
  • The ability to support long term business planning with stability and confidence

The participants will gain a new way of thinking and greater satisfaction in their work on “sustainability”:

  • Learn how to think differently – this on its own can be an eye-opening experience
  • Gain a new engineering discipline - Transition Engineering
  • Gain the ability to create more useful management systems and data
  • Learn from the co-founder of the Global Association for Transition Engineering
  • Become part of a global network of professionals tackling “unsustainability” challenges
  • Become the person in your team with the clearest future vision
