Participants will have the opportunity to translate learning into measurable application throughout the course which will assist you in your current role. The exam project for this course requires the participant to use Action Research as a research methodology, over the duration of the programme to introduce an innovative idea or solve a major problem within their workplace. Action research is a powerful tool in developing transformational leaders as it enables you to become a proactive manager who is able to mobilise resources to solve their problems or implement your ideas.
Evidence will be collected through a portfolio of evidence (POE). Participants will be required to submit this POE that documents their personal and professional growth in implementing this project as their final exam assignment. A POE is a valuable tool to support you in your career progress, as it provides tangible evidence to current and future employees of the ability of a manager to effect positive change.
This programme is certified by Alliance Manchester Business School and participants who successfully complete the programme will be awarded an (internationally recognised) AMBS AMP Certificate.
