Core programmes

Our core programmes form the basis of our Executive Education offering and include a focus on leadership, innovation and efficiency in business.

Building on the success of the National Assembly’s Women in Public Life Development scheme, facilitated by us and development agency Chwarae Teg, this programme will help organisations to redress inequality within their senior leadership team.

This will be achieved through reflection, coaching and group evaluation of the findings from our academic research. A transformative development programme, critically aimed at both men and women, this initiative will help organisations keen to achieve 50:50 representation by 2020.

In line with our new School strategy, this leadership programme will assist participants to appreciate the benefits of an ethical approach to business, one that understands the importance of contributing to society as well as generating profit.

Participants will be invited to investigate and discuss the grand challenges facing society and, in partnership with some of the leading lights within leadership, public management and governance, start to raise and respond to these challenges.

We believe this programme is unique in the marketplace and is now the flagship of the Executive Education portfolio.

This programme brings together Dr Joe O’Mahoney and Professor Robert Morgan, thought leaders in their field, who will work with organisations to:

  • assess their current innovative capability
  • develop the innovation capability of participants so as to effectively harness and increase their innovation potential

Our D&circw;r Cymru Welsh Water case study will give you a better understanding of how this programme can work for your organisation.

We offer organisations and individuals a unique perspective on service improvement thanks to its prestigious improvement heritage.  This course discusses different types of service innovation and improvement methodologies.

It assists participants to understand and practice a range of techniques, whilst considering the practicalities of how to deploy these tactics within their organisation, winning hearts and minds. 

This 5 day Lean Six Sigma Yellow and Green Belt training is a practical programme that enables attendees to start applying the tools and techniques to improve efficiency and effectiveness of business processes, irrespective of the size or type of industry.
