Western Australia's most enduring and respected development program for mid level managers and technical professionals, the Executive Development Course (EDCO) is essential for executives moving into a general management role. The EDCO has been an essential component of the career progression for thousands of executives over the past 30+ years.
This first class program is designed specifically for those people wanting to enhance their skills and knowledge to support a move into a more general management and leadership role. The content and facilitation style will broaden participants’ perspectives, have them gain a greater appreciation of the managerial role and provide practical techniques to improve their performance at work. Key topics such as strategy, leadership, risk management, continuous improvement and accounting are interwoven to encourage thinking beyond the day-to-day operational aspects of individual roles.
This premium program uses a blended learning approach which includes face-to-face sessions, access to our online learning platform and 12 months Professional Membership of AIM WA. Learn more at aimwa.com/blendedlearning
