An intensive programme designed specifically for senior managers who are moving into general management. This programme aims to broaden strategic and longterm thinking and build leadership confidence.
The business landscape is changing all the time and what works one day, may not work the next. Companies need to be more innovative, more motivated and quicker to respond than ever before if they want to adapt to present day-to-day challenges while still planning for future success. Whether they succeed or fail at this will depend on the quality of those trusted with leading the business.
