Description

Middle management is a critical component of any business and as such it deserves a very specific focus. In belt tightening times middle managers are also often squeezed with increasing responsibility from the top and less support coming up from below. Therefore, middle managers have to rapidly acquire a new set of competencies. The Programme for Management Development (PMD) at the GSB is designed to develop a well-rounded, consummate manager who can solve complex problems sustainably, creatively, and innovatively.

The programme is constantly assessed for relevance and rigour, and changes are made to ensure that the course reflects the best of what the GSB has to offer. In this newly revived programme, delegates will leave with a renewed sense of self- confidence knowing that they have the power to create the future rather than waiting for the future to happen.

The programme blends theory and practice in an easy-paced way; more down time has been introduced to give participants more time to assimilate what they are discovering. The goal is to deliver actionable knowledge. Also, by far, the bulk of learning on the programme comes from the group – learning from each other. For this reason, the more diverse the class – the greater the learning. Participants also take away with them a commitment to work on a real organisational challenge in their own workplace, ensuring a return on investment.
