As exponential environmental change becomes a reality, organisations are increasingly exposed to a new generation of organisational concepts and technologies. A paradigm shift in terms of new management and strategic leadership thinking is required. Senior managers will need to place greater emphasis on developing resilience and adaptability to changing circumstances and acquire the ability to sense and respond to new business models.
The Africa Senior Management Development Programme (SMDP) broadens the worldviews of senior managers and empowers them to be resilient in a dynamic business environment. It focuses on framing the challenges of a changing business and organisational landscape, equipping participants with a design mind set as they explore strategic concepts around innovation, sustainability, collaboration, project work, organisational change and business agility.
This programme is suited to senior managers from any industry who are needing to develop a strategic and design-thinking mindset, as well as develop leadership resilience in a VUCA environment.
In today’s rapidly changing environment, organisations are being exposed to entirely new ways of working. Over the course of 6 months, this senior management training empowers you with the tools to:
English language competence at NQF level 4 or equivalent.
Foundational knowledge of management and business
3 - 5 years experience in a middle to senior management role
"I had a lot of fun (and) I have seen a lot of improvement on my report writing. In respect of strategy for my business unit, I have taken a lot of ownership in terms of updating our strategy and presentations."
"It enabled me to operate at a senior management level by removing me from the day-to-day operations of my team. I got to use the time in class - away from the office - to reflect on my immediate role and on the organisation as a whole through learning from faculty and peers."
"The SMDP has given me a more complete view of the workplace and provided me with a better understanding of how the many different components come together to create the best synergy. It added a great deal of personal value to me by developing my strategic thinking – the programme requirements forced me to consider new challenges and situations through a different lens. The programme provided various challenges that developed and honed my management and leadership skills for the better. It encouraged me to explore more opportunities outside my current scope of influence, become a critical thinker and be a lifetime learner."
"Before this programme, many people had always told me that it takes strategic thinking to grow through the ranks in a corporate structure. I would always ask - How do I do that? How do I think strategically? This programme answered that question for me."
