Management – Advanced
Management and leadership skills have a major impact on the development, productivity and performance of organisations of all sizes and across all sectors of the economy. In today’s fast-moving competitive environment there is a need to continue to drive up the performance of the best and to address weaknesses in management and leadership that are holding back productivity and performance.

• Information technology skills
•Knowledge and project management skills
• Coaching and mentoring skills
• Skills to win and maintain customer loyalty
• Partnership working and the ability to implement innovative solutions to a range of problems.
As the workforce and the customer base become more diverse, management needs to reflect that diversity and manage it effectively.
