Management Challenge

"Teaching vital skills to your managers of tomorrow today"




The Management Challenge is designed to give your people the experience they need of managing a council in a shared services environment whilst in a safe and supportive environment.


By spending the day as the management team of two fictional local authorities, participants will have to devise strategies, meet with partnership organisations and political figures and demonstrate that they understand what it takes to transform the way their two councils work to enable them to be flexible in changing circumstances. Teams will be given extensive feedback during and after the event to enable them to build on their strengths and weaknesses back in their organisations.

  • Analytical and problem solving skills

  • Negotiation skills
  • Rapport building techniques
