Course Description

In today’s dynamic business environment, it is no longer sufficient for an organisation’s technical team to be proficient with tools and machines. The capacity to understand the business linkages of their operations, apprehend the drivers of change, and lead teams effectively, are requisite competences they must bring to the table.


This course equips the technical specialist to appraise emergent situations in their environments more clearly, demonstrate a higher sense of personal leadership in providing influence and inspired guidance, and apply new perspectives to solving today’s complex problems.


As competition becomes globalized and markets blend, the skills that brought us here cannot take us there. To thrive in these unpredictable times, leading companies are enhancing organizational capabilities by equipping their technical teams with the essential business and management skills for delivering successful outcomes and staying in the game.
