Course content

A specialist course for managers wanting to progress from a technical expert into departmental manager, director or business owner. This 2-day course will encourage you to develop skills that will simultaneously enhance your organisation and boost your career. You will explore the essential elements of a successful business including strategy, finance, leadership, marketing, technology and HR, and consider how these can be embedded within your organisation. 

Once you have mastered the technical skills of your profession, you can only progress by developing your business management skills. It is these skills which will enable you to provide a better service and contribute further to your organisation. If you can successfully manage and lead your organisation, or one of its business units, you are highly likely to extend your influence.

Career and organisational succession planning are too important to be left to chance. It is vital that you take practical steps to add business management skills to your technical expertise in order to become a valued and versatile professional.

Topics covered include:

  • Strategy and business planning
  • Administration and finance
  • People management
  • Business technology
  • Marketing, sales, and PR
  • Business processes and quality management

Course structure

Prior to this 2-day course you will be asked to complete a pre-course activity. The course will be led by a technical expert using stimulating and relevant real life scenarios and interactive sessions. This will allow you to practice skills and consolidate your learning in a safe training environment.
