This course develops practical management skills for managing people to achieve results.

The challenge of leading and managing other people is both exciting and demanding. Leaders and managers (both new and experienced) play a vital role in making sure that the team performs. They need good team and people management skills as well as a thorough understanding of the technical aspects of their work. They need to plan and organise work and time well, often in turbulent rapidly changing environments. They also need to lead teams through issues they face and continually improve the way work is carried out.
