Envision. Innovate. Achieve.

“I describe management as arts, crafts and science. It is a practice that draws on arts, craft and science and there is a lot of craft - meaning experience - there is a certain amount of craft, meaning insight, creativity and vision, and there is the use of science, technique or analysis.”
Henry Mintzberg

Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies, McGill University, Canada

As individuals rise through the ranks of an organization, they must harness their intelligence, imagination and knowledge to deliver organizational performance. To be effective, managers need to look beyond their own span of responsibility to understand the larger purpose of their roles and how their contributions to the organization can yield results, especially in an environment of constant change and uncertainty.

Energise your career with the vital competencies to be a great manager.
