Work-Based Management Learning Programs

Work-Based Management Learning

Work-Based Learning (WBL) is a well-recognised method for manager development, which impacts on the performance of managers working on real problems within organizations to produce tangible solutions and outcomes for their organisation and their divisions. The process uses teams of people working on projects that address real problems and issues of concern in their departments or divisions to achieve significant improvements while at the same time enhancing the managers’ skills and the abilities of their teams.

The programs are designed to enable the participants to understand the concepts and practices of WBL and the knowledge area and how these can be used for planning and implementing projects to achieve effective workplace improvement.

The programs are also designed for present and potential managers in the private and public sector including non-profit and voluntary organisations, and will require endorsement from their employer to base projects on their workplace.

Participants will typically be from middle management or at a senior level of the organisation. The types of Work-Based Management Learning modules that can be undertaken are as follows and are delivered via online learning and virtual collaboration:

  1. Critical Leadership Issues for Managers
  2. Enhancing the Creativity and Innovation of Organisations
  3. Managing Effective and Efficient Operations
  4. Tactical Marketing in Action
