Background and Objectives

There is a vast amount of material in circulation about business, organizations and management, from get-rich-quick guides to biographies of well-known business leaders, from material suitable for light reading on aeroplanes, to material intended for academic study. There are also any number of prestigious business schools and high-powered consultancies, churning out hundreds of books every year, presenting simple yet powerful ideas that will magically transform the business world.

This one day workshop provides a concise overview, which will help you to evaluate, integrate and use a broad range of practical ideas for business, organization and management.

Typical Audience

The workshop is ideal for:

  • Those with an IT background but with little business knowledge and experience, who want a rapid introduction to business theory and practice.
  • People with business experience but no formal business education, who want a conceptual framework

This course also serves as a useful introduction for related courses in business analysis and business architecture.

Training Approach

The course offers a rapid survey of a very broad range of business, organizational and management topics, together with a collection of resources for further study. There are some brief case studies for group discussion.
