Programme Overview

The primary objective of the Diploma in Management (12 day) programme is to deliver an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals involved in the management of others, gaining practical experience in the development of core skills in this area. The programme will offer participants the opportunity to learn more about their own management style, how best to lead and motivate others and best practice in this area.

Programme Outcomes

At the end of the programme participants will:

  • Develop an awareness of the human factors in the business environment and how individual differences (e.g. attitudes) impact on organisational performance
  • Develop an awareness and understanding of their style of leadership / management and how this impacts on others
  • Develop an integrated theoretical and practical perspective on Management and Leadership
  • Understand how to assign responsibilities, delegate and empower others and monitor progress effectively
  • Develop active listening and communication skills
  • Be able to deal with conflict in a more assertive and collaborative manner


There are a number of activities and case studies used throughout the programme which ensures that all of the learning is applied in a real way. The programme is delivered by experienced Ibec executives who provide members with advice, consultancy and training on a daily basis. The programme leader encourages group discussion and involvement throughout each session, ensuring opportunities for questions and real issues are discussed at all times. Best practice examples in all areas will be highlighted and discussed throughout the programme, giving participants plenty of opportunities to build on the elements of these that could be applied in their own organisations.
