As an experienced functional or specialist manager a typical Accelerated Development Programme participant has already gained 10 to 15 years' relevant management experience.
Many talented managers 'derail' when making the transition into general management. Specialist knowledge, technical skills and high levels of motivation have made them successful to date, but new capabilities are now required to be effective at the next level. Taking on a broader, more strategic role requires an ability to work with multiple realities that arise out of cross-functional tensions and conflicts. Building trusting relationships, developing broader networks and influencing through more levels in the organisation means managing through a different kind of conversation.
