Transition Labs: building skills, developing leaders

Our Transition Labs help executives hit the ground running in their new role

It's what we do that makes the difference

Successful transitions are critical for business. That’s why, since 2011, Deloitte has supported many executives in their transition to a new role through our Transition Lab programme.

The Transition Lab is designed to assist recently appointed executives to hit the ground running and thrive in their new roles. It plays an important part of our commitment to supporting our clients in developing their leaders by helping individuals make an efficient and powerful transition.

The Transition Lab Programme started with the market-leading CFO Transition Lab and its popularity and outstanding feedback has inspired us to set up initiatives for a number of C-suite roles. This year we have invested further in the programme and we now offer the Deloitte Transition Lab for incoming CEOs, CMOs, Audit Committee Chairs, Cyber Leaders and Heads of M&A. 

Transition Lab participants have greatly valued the opportunity to take time out to consider their role holistically, in a safe environment. Recent feedback includes:

This is a rare chance to indulge yourself in thinking about your aspirations, plans and challenges in a new role with a group of high quality, talented professionals who are highly motivated to help you succeed and are prepared to put the pre work in to make highly effective use of your time


The facilitators are excellent - at no time did I have any sense other than they were investing their time in me and my future

The Lab is a fantastic (and probably unique) opportunity to spend a whole uninterrupted day working out what you need to prioritise to be successful in your new role. The day is really well structured, incredibly well facilitated and ends with a personal and concrete action plan.
