The practical portion of the Programme requires participants to embark on project work by pre-select one of three topics covering the most pressing challenges faced by SMPs –
(i) venture into advisory services
(ii) people strategy
(iii) technology strategy
With the knowledge acquired from the facilitated training, participants will then perform a deep dive review, identify gaps and areas of improvement, and formulate strategies customised to the SMPs’ business needs. Qualified consultants will be assigned to facilitate the completion and delivery of the participants’ project work. Participants will have 4 months to complete the project work.
