Successful managers know their strengths and weaknesses, accentuating the former and minimising the latter. Whether, as a senior manager, you are leading a large organisation, business unit or a high performance team, the Advanced Management Programme will help enhance your management capability.

The Advanced Management Programme is a hands-on programme that takes you on a significant professional and personal journey that challenges your understanding of what ‘good management’ encompasses, whilst developing your appreciation of leadership and how it’s used to inspire outstanding performance in a team or organisation.
