Accelerated Development Programme
Accelerate your transition into general management.
When you move to general management from a specialist manager role, you can't just rely on specialist knowledge to carry you through - you need a whole new set of management skills. The Accelerated Development Programme (ADP) prepares today's managers to become tomorrow's leaders by supporting you through the transition into general management.
