About the program
The aim of this program is to prepare current and prospective project and program managers for the management and coordination of transition and transformation projects and programs. The delegates will gain core skills and competencies for managing global projects with a focus on organizational/service transition. Apart from general project management modules the program covers other key skills and competences such as organizational transition, leadership, virtual and multicultural team management, facilitation, coaching and mentoring, creative problem solving and visual thinking. Based on Project Management Institute® Talent Triangle which represents the skillset that organizations have deemed as critical for project practitioners the Transition Management Academy meets the expectations of today’s complex business environment. Today to succeed just having the technical domain skills is not enough. To truly succeed, we need technical project management skills, leadership capabilities and strategic and business management proficiency.

- It is the only one project management training program in Poland based on the PMI Talent Triangle®, where we teach not only how to run complex projects and programs in the most efficient way, but also help people to move through personal transition. I has been summarised by one of the students: "I joined the program to open the doors, but the Transition Manager Academy opened my eyes”.
- It will guide you through an exploration of what it is to be a leader of others for processes of significant transitional change. Much of our focus is on the skills, capabilities, values and beliefs needed to be able to guide yourself as leader, and others, through our volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world.
- Central to our teaching is a belief in the value of curiosity in a leader – the ability to be comfortable whilst being in, and actively demonstrating the behaviors, the come from a ‘not knowing’ state; a state of curiosity which we believe to be key to enabling the learning and adaptability needed to thrive during times of rapid change.
- And last but not least we are ready to run the whole program virtually.

Opinions of students and alumni
I highly recommend Transition Manager Academy course as probably first in Poland, yet perfectly prepared one-year journey to get acquainted with all you might think of when it comes to transition and transformation.
For me Transition Manager Academy was a really life-changing experience. Each weekend full of training gave me a lot of inspiration
Thank you once again for your effort and great opportunity to learn. I have noticed the change in me and it's evolving ever since I joined the Transition Manager Academy.
Transition Management Academy (1st edition) in short. Very supportive, open-minded mentors and lecturers with international background,
Thank you for a wonderful journey called Transition Manager Academy, which has changed not only my professional life by giving it a new meaning
I would absolutely recommend the Transition Manager Academy at Kozminski University. As a foreigner who attended this track from another city,
Completing the Transition Manager Academy programme has undoubtedly played an important part in my professional and personal growth. With its content heavy but practical, the TMA course not only helped me to significantly expand my theoretical knowledge but also gave me the chance to hone my soft skills like creative problem-solving, team collaboration, public speaking, visual thinking and facilitating discussions.
Supported by my thesis supervisor, I also had the opportunity to look into topics that are particularly close to my heart like introversion and emotional intelligence and explore them in-depth in the context of project management and leadership.
More importantly, however, throughout the course, I was given the time and space to reflect on my values, needs and the expectations I held for myself and others. Reevaluating them in coaching-like sessions drove me to become an evermore authentic, empathic, empowered leader with redefined goals and new aspirations. What else have I gained in the process? Newfound confidence in my abilities and capacity to grow; the courage to trust my intuition and show up just as I am, assertively and unapologetically; a reminder of what serves me both in my career and personal life.
