Answer for Common Purpose and Cass Business School

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Leadership Development Programme at Cass Business School was a bespoke programme designed to address key business and people issues at Transport for London (TfL) between 2012 and 2016. The Cass programme was designed to improve collaboration within TfL, improve leadership of change and create increased commercial focus.

It was not intended to be a like for like replacement for Common Purpose, which aimed to equip leaders to work together across boundaries.
