IIE Business School in Madrid Spain to Offer Adizes Training

Over the last 3 years, the number of universities offering courses on Adizes theory has increased significantly. I am privileged to have worked with Dr. Adizes while he was still at UCLA and as he established his internationally acclaimed Adizes Institute. He became a valuable resource to business educators in California and continued to grow his consulting and training organizations in Europe and other developing nations. The BA Business School in Riga, Latvia, ISM in Kaunas Lithuania, the Euromed Management school in Marseille, France, the International Academy of Business, Almaty, Kazakhstan, the Riga Technical University in Riga, Latvia, the School of Economics and Business in Sarajevo, Bosnia, the Francisco Gavidia University and the Dr. Jose Matias Delgado University both in San Salvador, El Salvador, TEC de Monterrey in Monterrey Mexico, IPM Business School in Minsk, Belarus, KMBS, KNEU and The European University all in Kiev, Ukraine, The University of Tulsa in the United States, Voronezh State University, Volgograd State University, MSI, MIRBIS, High school of economic, Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, MABIU in Russia and many other Universities have all offered courses on Adizes.

 About 15 years ago he and his wife Nurit became even more active in the Young President's Organization of which I am a life time member. I also got a chance to know them as we are practically neighbors here in Santa Barbara and became an adviser to his organization. I am a firm believer in his philosophies or organizational life cycles and have enjoyed sitting in on a number of international groups he has trained here at his world HQ in Santa Barbara, California.

 I just received a notice that they are proud to announce that in addition to the many distinguished universities listed above, as well as the Adizes Graduate School founded by Dr. Adizes, Adizes theory will now be offered in the IE Business School in Madrid Spain. IE Business School has consistently been ranked as one of the top business universities in the world. The Executive MBA program was ranked 1st worldwide by The Economist in 2010, 4th worldwide by America Economia in 2011, and 1st in Europe by The Wall Street Journal in 2010.

 "We at the Adizes Institute are excited at the prospect of exposing students at this top ranked institution to Adizes" the executive administrator Paula Lemon told me today. Adizes Institute is a worldwide consulting organization serving clients who are involved in many diverse industries, ranging in size from start-ups to members of the Global 100.

 At the heart of the organization is the Institute where research, licensing and training in the Adizes Methodology is conducted. In 2011, Leadership Excellence ranked Adizes Institute among the top ten organizations for leadership development. The Institute is also associated with the Adizes Graduate School, which offers master and doctoral degree programs in organizational transformation. Dr. Ichak Kalderon Adizes, Ph.D. is the founder of Adizes and the creator of the proprietary methodology for managing change. Since 1973, Adizes has been changing the way management is taught and practiced around the world.
