for Learning Impact
The challenges and opportunities facing your company are ever-changing. Which means you need leadership skills that can drive competitive advantage, no matter what the future holds. This 21-day general management programme is a transformative experience that allows you to reframe your leadership role and strategic thinking.
If you’re looking for a senior manager programme that opens your mind, boosts effectiveness and transforms your leadership approach, the Advanced Management Programme is for you.
The Advanced Management Programme takes business education to a new level. It combines robust academic insights with real-world approaches, so that you live and learn through activities, in-depth understanding and a practical, hands-on, strategic project. This rounded approach means you’re ready to leap into action and give your company an immediate return on investment.
The Advanced Management Programme is designed around two core themes – strategic decision making, and your role as a leader. It takes you on a journey that future-proofs your thinking and your approach to leadership.
When your business environment is evolving and changing at a rapid pace, strategic focus is essential. Predictably high performance only comes out of strong strategic direction – that can accommodate changes in the marketplace, customer behaviour, digital disruption, regulation and new forms of competition. You’ll learn to make decisions that ensure profitability today – and success in the future.
Excellence in leadership comes from a perfect blend of hard and soft skills. Effective communication, clear decision-making processes and relationship-building skills are hallmarks of change-makers. You’ll be coached to help you influence your teams and stakeholders, so that you can roll your vision out across your organisation. And you’ll take part in exercises designed to challenge your existing leadership approach.
You’ll put everything you’ve learned into practice in a strategic business challenge. You’ll assess your company’s strategic approach, make recommendations – and lead transformation. You’ll be supported throughout with intensive coaching sessions, and direct input from our expert faculty and your peers. It’s an immediate way for your company to see a return on investment in your management training – and it gives you a safe, supported environment to address a strategic challenge in your organisation.

I’ve been the director of the Partena Health Insurance Fund since 1991. I've witnessed merger after merger. This means you must constantly question your raison d’être and modus operandi. I’m 59 years old, and was 57 when I did the Advanced Management Programme. The programme forces you to think and also to do.
