This module explores these areas and by the end students will understand the importance of training and development within an organization and will be able to construct relevant and targeted plans.

By the end of the module students will understand the various nuances and how they can best be harnessed. Strategic Planning Tools The strategy of a business is that plan that tells us what the business is all about, where a business is going, how it is going to get there, what checks and balances we have along the way and how change is embaced. There are many tools and techniques that can assist in putting together a cohesive and coherent strategy and this module examines some of those. By the end of the module students will have been exposed to planning techniques and tools and will be comfortable and confident in using them in their work. Strategies for Growth A business can have more than a single strategic plan. There can be separate strategies for different elements of a business. Many businesses are focused primarily in growth and need to have a clear roadmap as to how they will manage the various stages of growth of their business. There are both internal factors and less controllable external factors that will need to be considered in growing a business. This module explores the different ideas of growth and the various tools, measures and controls at a managers disposal in planning for growth. By the end of the module students will be confident in putting together a plan for growth. Studying and Using Management Theories There are many theories that abound concerned with management and the various models developed from these theories. What are the various theories? How do they differ? How do we evaluate them? How do we ascribe a particular style to ourselves as managers? This model interrogates the various theories and assists students in evaluating their own style. By the end of the module students will be able to assess their own preferred model and understand how they can apply that model to their work environment. The Business Plan The business plan is the road map for a business over a defined period of time. It tells you what you will do, when you will do it, how you will do it and the results you will expect. Clearly this is not a simple or superficial document. It is an ongoing reference point. This module defines the structure of the plan. What should and should not be in it and how it can be used as a reference point. By the end of the module students will have a clear understanding of the structure of the plan and the background work required to develop it. The External Operating Environment of Business Business is not an isolated and independent function. It is affected and impacted by a range of external factors that might present both threat and opportunity but in any case will require monitoring and managing. These may include political influences, legal influences, world events and the like. Business need to be aware of such factors and plan for them by way of contingency and risk management and by planning for change. By the end of this module students will be aware of the nature of external influences and how an organization might mitigate their exposures. Tools of Financial Analysis Business accounts tell more about the business than almost anything else and it is important to be able to analyze accounts of both your own organization and other organizations and use a variety of analytical tools to help articulate exactly what the accounts are telling you about the business. There are many of these most useful tools and this model will teach the student how to use them. By the end of the module students will understand clearly how they can use these tools to interrogate the true state of a business. [-]
