As a manager or consultant you will spend much of your working time on finding solutions to complex and/or strategic business problems. This two-day programme will boost your effectiveness in this area by exposing you to a variety of best practice methods and techniques, developed by the top global management consulting firms, which you can apply to your own work situation.
The programme will cover the identification of problems, through to planning, communication, and successful implementation of solutions. The programme will be interactive consisting of casebased lectures and exercises, and small-group problem-solving workshops using participants’ business issues.
During the programme you will identify your own project to implement. A follow-up afternoon session will be scheduled 2-3 months later to evaluate this and address any issues encountered.

• Strategic planning / corporate development staff
• Internal consultants

Each session will be highly interactive comprising a lecture on casebased methods and techniques, an in-class exercise, breakout sessions with participants working in small groups on their own real world cases, and presentation and discussion on the solutions. Participants will return for a half-day session 2-3 months after the programme to present and receive feedback on their personal project progress.
