Designed Specifically For …
All executives, senior managers, managers and team leaders who want to improve their own management and business performance. The programme will also prove invaluable for managers and executives from a variety of backgrounds and skill bases who are in or moving into more general management or leadership roles. The ability to read the bigger picture and grow capability in strategy, finance, marketing and people management will greatly aid their progress. In the past, organisations have also nominated high potential individuals to attend this programme as part of their long-term strategy to develop the managers and leaders of the future.
Innovative Programme Format
The 5-day MBA for Managers is all about creating value – both for you as an individual and for your organisation. As a result of this value-focus you can expect the programme to be highly intensive and experiential with opportunities to work with others, test out learning and apply it to self.
The format is a mixture of high energy workshops focusing on key concepts. The sessions themselves are also a forum for debate, challenge and discussion to help participants ground the learning in their own reality. The learning is further embedded and applied through two real time projects which run throughout the five days of the course.
The first is a business simulator where groups will be given an opportunity to take a business concept to market and develop it to the stage where they would pitch their proposition to a group of experts.
The second is centred on recognising your own talents and skills and marketing them to a ‘board’. In the current business climate of hostile acquisitions and takeovers and mergers, the ability to demonstrate personal impact and authenticity as a ‘full range dynamic leader’ has never been more important.
Programme tutors are on hand throughout, providing support and short coaching opportunities where you feel they are needed.
