One of the main challenges we have in East Africa is the level of skill in our core employees, those who work with our clients and in the delivery of work in our organisations.
Whereas an effective organisation requires a sound strategy and effective management, we recognise that employees are indeed the heart of every organisation; and are key in influencing performance.

To aid in the enablement and development of these individuals we offer the Business Foundations Programme.

Programme Delivery

This programme will be delivered through a business simulation which will involve a series of practical sessions with relevant theoretical foundations. It will also incorporate a good deal of behavioural modelling.
