Learning Outcomes

Even the smallest of businesses require expertise across a myriad of domains, such as accounting and personnel leadership. For many organisations, much of this expertise falls upon a single individual. Our Manage Business Effectively short course, facilitated by experienced industry practitioners based in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Adelaide, will provide you with the insight and knowledge to address the entirety of organisational processes and issues, enabling participants to recognise where improvements can be made and implement the required plans.

Upon completion of this business management course you’ll be able to:

  • Create an environment that supports the application of innovative practice through a holistic approach to the integration of innovation across all areas of your organisation
  • Lead and manage continuous improvement systems and processes
  • Develop and monitor operational plans to provide efficient and effective workplace practices that improve your organisation’s productivity and profitability
  • Undertake successful projects by planning, administering, and monitoring outcomes before reviewing the project to identify lessons learned
