  • Personality and Leadership
  • Strategy Tools for Competitive Positioning
  • Strategic Management of Technology & Innovation
  • Team Leadership and Change Management

Innovation Management and Creativity

The Innovation Management and Creativity module covers the strategic and managerial elements associated with innovation. This includes strategically integrating innovation into business processes and how to align an organisation correctly – to maximise commercial success.

A variety of models and practical tools will be discussed to give course participants a broad overview of different business environments.

Problem Solving and Critical Thinking

This module introduces candidates to the concepts and skills of evidence-based management. Participants will learn how to use the best information available to them in order to make a better business decision.

Learners will work both as part of a team and as an individual – to improve their ability and understanding of how best to apply critical thinking in any given situation.

Personality and Leadership

The most effective managers have developed a range of skills such as self-awareness and both social and emotional intelligence.

This module is designed to highlight these soft skills and to help participants to deepen these skills. Self-assessment tests including NEO-PI-3 are used to help the learner develop and understand these skills in more detail.

Strategy Tools for Competitive Positioning

Participants will explore concepts, techniques and theories that form the basis of strategic management and how they can be applied in various business scenarios.

Candidates will have a greater understanding of how to manage a business from a strategic perspective rather than an operational one.

Strategic Management of Technology & Innovation

Businesses use technology to deliver products and services of all shapes and sizes for their customers. This module focuses on managing that technology and how to optimise it in order to achieve organisational goals.

Team Leadership and Change Management

In this module participants will cover two very important topics – team leadership and change management. The outcome is that candidates will have a greater understanding of organisations and how to analyse them in greater detail, carry out effective team-work and manage organisational change.
