Who should attend
Managers and senior teams in growing businesses.
About the course
Essential Management provides the senior team with the key tools needed to effectively manage functional departments and resources within SMEs. While core management skills are universal, the context and challenges of an SME are very different from businesses in earlier or later stages of growth. Therefore, equipping managers with the skills and understanding of how they can truly impact the business in this stage is fundamental. During the programme, participants will identify opportunities and develop a commercially-driven business case that will contribute to the business strategy.
What you will learn
The programme is a modular course run over four days in total during which managers will develop deeper understanding of the core elements of management for small-medium businesses. The focus will be on driving enhanced performance by addressing strategy, marketing, finance, human resources and personal effectiveness. The course also provides a valuable opportunity to benchmark against other SMEs in the cohort.
