Management Consultants resolve issues, generate value, maximise growth and improve the business performance of their clients. They use their business skills to provide objective advice, expertise and specialist skills which the organisation may be lacking. Project Managers plan and manage all kinds of business projects, and make sure they are completed on time, to specification and within budget. Project Managers can be employed in almost every industry on many different types of venture, from introducing a new computer system, to launching a new product, to overseeing a large building project.
Modern day organisations look for Hybrid Managers. A person who has the combined skill sets of a Management Consultant and a Project Manager will always be in high demand.
A key element of this programme is the focus on practical application of Management Consulting and Project Management tools to resolve issues, generate value, maximize growth and improve business performance for your internal customers or external clients. You will learn how to understand the client’s situation, conduct analysis and prepare business proposals for recommended solutions. Through the practical experience you will gain on the programme, you will develop your confidence in presenting solutions to senior management teams and board members. From there you will learn how to turn approved proposals into practical projects where you will be able to manage the timescales, costs and resources needed, draw up a detailed plan and schedule for how to achieve each stage of the project, make sure that each stage of the project is progressing on time, on budget and to the right quality standards, and report regularly on progress to the client or to senior managers.
