General Management Programme
Managing People for Strategic Advantage
6 days over 3 weeks (Tuesday & Thursday)
Start Date
August 24

In today’s complex business environment characterised by pervasive economic uncertainty, organisations are constantly seeking to develop and execute a winning strategy. Most forward-looking organisations, realising that distinctive human resources are critical in orchestrating a winning performance, now place more attention on aligning their human resource function with their strategic business objectives. Recent research suggests, however, that line managers remain a vital but often weak link in the alignment process, as they are ill-equipped to effectively manage the implementation of human resource aspects of business strategy.

This intensive three-day programme begins with an exploration of several fundamental aspects of managing and leading people. Participants will complete a Myers-Briggs (MBTI) assessment to understand their leadership types, and how to leverage their style to get results through others and make better managerial decisions. They will also gain an appreciation of key ethical issues in the employment relationship, and how to effectively handle them, among others.
