Course Overview

Overall introduction to the Job of the Manager (JOMAN)

Have you recently taken on added responsibilities, been preparing for a career transition, promoted or have years of work experience but not formally guided in management and leadership skills?

JOMAN is a uniquely designed programme to complement technical and specialist know-how by providing a practical orientation to holistic general management thinking and tools, otherwise available through formal academic programmes. 

The JOMAN programme focuses on three key dimensions:

  • Personal Mastery
  • People Management
  • Organisation Alignment

Developed in a series of two progressive levels, participants have the flexibility to join a suitable JOMAN programme to benefit from its broad range of comprehensive concepts. 

JOMAN: Essential Leadership Skills

This component programme (of the JOMAN programme package) provides middle-level managers with the opportunity to take stock of their approach to management and consider ways in which they may need to adjust that approach to take account of changing circumstances and increasing leadership responsibilities.

It places a particular emphasis on the middle manager’s role in both influencing and implementing strategy, and organizational change. Other important themes include developing high performance teams and collaborative relationships within and beyond the organisation.
