The Managers and Leaders in Action (MLA) Programme is designed to develop your leadership and management knowledge, skills and behaviours. It is ideal for those with responsibility for people management and translating organisational strategy into effective performance. You will probably be a few years into your management career and looking to enhance your practice and have a greater impact. The programme is highly interactive and you will put your learning into action, working on a strategically important project that you will identify and deliver over the course of the programme. Previous participants projects have focused on setting up a new research group, developing and implementing a new procurement strategy, and maximising research impact.
The programme is delivered from June 2020 to March 2021 using the 70:20:10 learning model:
70% experiential (based around your own project with additional support)
20% social (happens with and through your colleagues)
10% formal (through structured workshops)
