Employers are demanding that their employees are much more workplace focused than ever before, and want to see academic and professional learning and development linking more directly with workplace performance and capability in order to make a more positive impact at work.  Regardless of professional discipline, organisations increasingly need people who are not only extremely competent in their professional or vocational discipline, they also need to be good managers and leaders; to understand the dynamics of the workplace; to be able to get the best out of people; while deploying optimised business acumen. Through these qualities we can ensure greater individual impact and performance, which in turn enhances organisational competitiveness.
