Why invest in management development?

Management is the vehicle for delivering the success of organizations. Management creates and implements strategic plans, structures the organization to operate efficiently and, perhaps most importantly, provides the leadership and motivation to keep employees engaged and productive. It is the critical coordinating function which underpins achievement.

Given this, and given the breadth of management development objectives for different managers at different stages, how can organizations be sure they are getting real business value from the management development investments they choose to make? Or to rephrase that question, what actually works? As a business school, it is vitally important that we continually experiment and review the techniques we use to enable managers to lead their organizations successfully.

Our General Management Open Programs are designed with this in mind. From the day-long business simulation on the Management Development Program to the live client consulting assignment on the Fast-Track Advanced Management Program and the intensive coaching sessions during the Senior Executive Program, people leave us not just with new skills and learning, but critically with the confidence to operate differently.
