The company required the development of high potential staff to become future leaders in the organisation and create robust future succession plans. The maxim ‘develop the people, bank the cash’ required measurable improvement through strategic projects.
We designed a 15 day accredited day programme that blends academic concepts with practical hands-on application. This included the identification of improvements in strategic areas of the organisation. Participants were required to recruit an executive sponsor, engage with a variety of stakeholder groups and investigate initiatives that could be applied and evaluated. Through formal presentation of these projects and supporting development, participants gained a University Certificate in Management Studies (CMS) plus a CMI Level 7 Award in Strategic Management & Leadership, plus valuable development and recognition to demonstrate their learning.
As a result of the programme, the firm has recouped their investment several times over and have a highly focussed pool of staff with greater insight, understanding and skills to manage with impact in the organisation.
