Management Development Programme Outline

As the business environment continually changes, organisations need to stay ahead of these changes. If organisations do not learn faster than the prevailing rate of change, their survival can be jeopardised! This understanding has led to the concept of the “learning organisation”, which can be summarised quite simply as the ability to learn from the past, to apply what has been learned in the present and to think ahead into the future always combining explicit and tacit knowledge of the particular organisation.
