About the course

New managers are faced with numerous challenges as they transition from being an individual contributor in an organization to a manager who leads a team to achieve results. They must learn how to lead others rather than do the work themselves, to motivate, manage their peers, earn trust and respect, and to strike the right balance between delegation and control. It is a transition many find challenging to make.

The New Manager Development Programme (NMDP) is Strathmore Business School’s entry level leadership programme. The programme aims to equip new managers with skills on the various areas of management to aid them transition from in being a successful individual contributor to an effective manager.
