Manager Acceleration Programme (MAP)

Activate management knowledge and skills

Our Management Acceleration Programme (MAP) activates manager thinking, grows manager knowledge and builds manager competence. Suitable for new to middle managers, it provides a solid foundation on which to build a strong management career.

Who is MAP for?

The MAP programme is in demand for cohorts of managers from a single company: we customise the content to the industry and environment of the company. It is also very popular as an open, public programme. Each candidate undergoes a full 360-degree analysis with written report.
