Name of SLP: Executive Development Programme
SLP Code: EXDP1800S


Short Description of the SLP: Although change in the twenty-first century is discontinuous, abrupt, and seditious, it does not mean that we must stop the search for and implementation of timeless principles into our personal and enterprise levels and, in so doing, position ourselves for the pursuit of long-term performance and competitiveness. The tasks of managers and leaders have become more complex and challenging than ever, and finding clear-cut "answers" is almost impossible.
The programme therefore creates awareness of the disruptive and ever-changing age we live in and confronts the participant with the enormous complexity and challenges that management and leadership face in the twenty-first century, especially in relation with innovation, repositioning and change management.
