This programme is delivered by instructors from T&CMD. It is run over 2 modules of four days each. The LPP is designed to enhance the skills of managers by focusing on their ability to create and develop high performing teams and enabling these teams to function at optimal capacity.

This study will not only carry out an ROI from Level 1 (reaction) to Level 4 (impact), but will also introduce a Level 5 component (Transfer Climate), which identifies the environmental factors that help or hinder a learner from applying their new knowledge and skills when back on the job.
