TMTC General Management Development Programme (TGMDP)
22 Feb - 27 Feb
TMTC, Pune
Very often, the leadership journey of a professional finds her/her moving gears from remaining a functional expert to taking on more general management responsibility. This shift in roles is a natural transition and growth that takes the individual closer to the leadership pipeline. The new role requires new capabilities -
effective management of business, a cross functional perspective, and enhanced interpersonal skills in order to manage both upwards and downwards.

The responsibilities that the role thus involves are multi fold, with the individual expected to learn many of the required skills on the job, making the role challenging on two levels -
  • It requires enhanced business skills-an appreciation of the macro environment; a deep understanding of various management functions and the inter-linkages between them that impact business success; and a holistic perspective on the business
  • The individual needs to be skilled at timely decision-making, after careful analysis of various aspects of the business in a dynamic and uncertain environment.
Thus the aim of the program is to hone the business management capabilities of high potential middle-level managers, to help them develop a range of competencies, and to equip them with tools and techniques that are required for effective execution of the organization's strategy.

The various learning modules will be delivered through in-class sessions that will include case discussions and conceptual frameworks; out-door and in-class experiential activities; group work; etc.
