Management Fundamentals


Management Fundamentals

The objective of this training is to help participants understand management as skills, tools and techniques, and as mindsets. The program is focused on the process of translating corporate strategy into managerial decisions and actions. The participants will be invited to analyze the organization as a complicated system and to improve their professional skills so that they can manage themselves and the resources they are responsible for toward consistent strategic ends. Participants will be invited to experience the function of professional managers within the context of delivering results that add value for all stakeholders of the enterprise.

In our Blended Learning Programs, participants can practice applying managerial skills to a simulation company as they run a simulated company over several rounds. With short lectures before each round the participants are reminded of the theory and tools of each management function. The simulation allows them to make mistakes and have learning moments in a safe environment. Participants will develop a disciplined and consistent approach to better understand the context, function and tools of management
