Management development is the process by which managers learn and improve their skills to benefit both themselves and their organisation.
At Oxford Brookes, we work with organisations to develop the skills necessary to support your business through organisational growth. As any organisation grows, core technical skills shift from being of primary importance to being of equal importance to the skills that hold high performing teams together: leadership, management and team development.
By developing an understanding of the company's vision and how collectively they can affect growth, it is possible for managers to develop their own capabilities in motivating, empowering and developing staff in their teams, while monitoring how their team currently performs. If you are interested in the type of content we have included in previous management development programmes, please see this example.
Staff at Oxford Brookes can work with you to build a programme tailored to the specific needs of your business, focussing on the issues that currently affect you and that may have an impact in the future.

"Our environmental management development courses, which focus on staff training across all areas of the business, can deliver immediate reductions in energy consumption of around 5%. They are also a great tool for staff motivation and engagement. We tailor our courses to meet specific business needs and have delivered them to managers of small business units as well as larger companies. Organisations like Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons, Victory Services Club and Wadworth have worked with us and - having realised the benefits - are now looking at extending their responsible business initiatives."
