The Centre for Excellence for Leadership and Management Skills in Wales (LMW) is a unique centre of excellence, funded by government to benefit businesses of all sizes and sectors across Wales.
LMW was formed to support businesses in developing their leadership and management development (LMD) skills, enabling them to increase efficiency and help grow the economy in Wales.
It is funded by the European Social Fund and the Welsh Government, which also sponsors the project.
As a Wales-wide consortium, LMW benefits from the strength of partnership working - pooling expertise from lead partner Cardiff Business School, and other consortium members Aberystwyth University, Glyndwr University and Tattum Guest Associates Ltd to deliver unrivalled research insight and hands-on business experience.
With these centres throughout Wales, LMW provides a level of geographic coverage which ensures comprehensive knowledge and understanding of LMD activity, including regional distinctions, across the country.
To create an environment where every business in Wales is aware of, understands, engages with and can benefit from leadership and management development (LMD).
LMW will achieve its vision through four aims:
1. Raising awareness of the benefits of LMD, explaining and promoting LMD in ways which are appropriate and meaningful to businesses of all sizes and in all sectors;
2. Positioning LMW as Wales' one-stop-shop for all LMD information and resource;
3. Providing evidence of the impact of LMD on individual businesses and the economy more widely;
4. Making the LMD in Wales the best it can be.
LMW organises and promotes events throughout Wales to educate, inform and inspire better understanding of LMD and increase LMD activity.
LMW undertakes and co-ordinates research into all aspects of LMD to improve understanding of benefits and inform future activity. Research covers individual impact, organisational impact, and collating the latest thinking around specific areas of leadership and management.
LMW provides information and directs you to available funding through the Welsh Government's ELMS (Enhancing Leadership and Management Skills) programme.
As the one-stop-shop for LMD in Wales, LMW provides a range of free resources, including the unique Network Locator Tool, course directory, video, case studies, interviews, guides and fact sheets.
LMW keeps you informed of the latest news and developments in LMD throughout Wales and further afield through an online news service and free enewsletter.
LMW's comprehensive knowledge and understanding of LMD in Wales enables it to point you to information and resources from sources throughout Wales and beyond.
LMW measures and analyses the quality of funded LMD training provision in Wales to ensure LMD is the best it can be.
