Managing Business Improvement

COURSE OVERVIEW

Most medium and larger organizations today will have well established Quality management systems. Most managers will be aware of them although few will have in depth knowledge of how they work, and their relative effectiveness in promoting productivity and portability.

Such a culture requires leadership, resourcing and continuous nurturing. As a leader, you can gain substantial traction in your career if you can demonstrate success with the application of these principles, and in the successful execution a business improvement program.
