Management Skills

Whether you’re new to a management role and seeking to build new skills, or have been managing and leading teams for many years and want to explore new ideas and ways of doing things, this programme will have something for you.

It explores the evolution of management theory and approaches over the years, from the initial principles of management from Barnum, to the latest thinking from practitioners and academics of today.

We use case studies and real-world examples to show how a suite of models can be appropriately combined, to establish cutting edge management practises that can deal with the most turbulent times and operate in the most agile of environments.
