The Management Collection is a progressive series of five management training courses that provides an easy, engaging and effective way for managers to acquire the knowledge and skills required for success.

This is training people LIKE to take.

Presented in a self-study format on an innovative CD-ROM platform, these programs provide the flexibility to learn anytime, anywhere. Self-study allows you to control your own learning - and research shows that’s the best way for adults to learn. In addition, self-study is cost effective – it requires no facilitator, no travel time or expense.

The Management Collection breaks the boring mold of traditional training programs.

Each course features:

  • Current, relevant and realistic content stories and situations
    (Play Sample Clip)
  • Engaging, challenging and robust videogame interactivity
  • Large screen video and movie-style vignettes

But what knowledge and skills do managers need?

How do managers support their people in a way that increases their productivity? Research and the experience of successful managers identify four key management activities:

      1. Communicate explicit expectations
      2. Provide the information and resources to do the job right
      3. Measure, recognize and celebrate
      4. Show you care by encouraging growth
If you want to build your business, you need to teach your managers what to do AND you need to provide some tools to keep them engaged in these four key activities. That’s what The Management Collection is all about.
