Active Management Programme – Management Training

If you want a business that runs like a machine with reliable quality and consistent margins, then you need a team that manages resources, people and process professionally.

The Active Management Programme (AMP®) will give you that team.

Here’s the thing: no matter how much you develop yourself, your business is always going to be constrained if your managers don’t step up.

Good managers are multipliers. They leverage the skills and attitudes of their teams and make the business work faster and better. They make the whole greater than the sum of the parts. They create critical mass.

The problem is, most managers in SME businesses are in their role because they were good at their job. The idea is they’ll be good at showing others how to be good at their jobs. But that’s like expecting every great player to be a great coach.

When you teach your people to become better managers, you’ll:

  • Get the best from your people; attract and keep high performing staff
  • Create critical mass with a team capable of running your business
  • Free yourself to focus your time and effort on growth

We firmly believe that strong leadership when applied correctly plays a pivot role in the success of any team and organisation.

Your challenges

SME managers typically come from a technical background with limited management skills or training

They have an underdeveloped ability to think strategically about the future because they’re too busy in the operations of today’s business

They don’t manage their time effectively – they work reactively on urgent tasks and often don’t get to the big important things

No one is learning, and the one-off training they have done often hasn’t had any real lasting impact

In many cases you also haven’t learned how to teach the skills of management to your team

Powerful practical proven management training

Most management training doesn’t work because it doesn’t reflect how adults actually learn, and so the training doesn’t stick.

The Active Management programme leverages the insights and experiences we’ve gained through more than 15 years of running development programmes for SME businesses. Our approach is based on best practice adult learning methodology and is proven by our clients’ business results. We know how adults learn and have applied these principles to develop the Active Management programme for managers.
