Embarking on the IMI Diploma in Management programme has been an incredible journey. The subjects cover all aspects of business and offer significant benefits from helping me to build strong teams to planning and executing strategic plans. The practical nature of every module allowed me to easily apply everything I learned in the classroom to my place of work. The breadth and content of the course challenged me to plan and deliver beyond my role to the point where I secured promotion to a broader role as Client Services Director for Merrion Fleet Management within months of starting the course. Disciplined and regular study is required to achieve excellence and to take what is learned to the next level and apply it in the workplace. I believe this programme provides the perfect foundation for professional development and can deliver a real difference both to your career and to the success of your business.

Go into it with an open mind and embrace the programme. It is excellent. Better than I expected. Facilitator excellent in explaining everything. I would have no hesitation in speaking to any potential participant to explain how good this is.
Four members of our team participated in the ManagementWorks Lean Business Programme, each looking at different elements of our business. As a service provider it is essential that we are continuously providing service delivery improvement, increasing our value proposition to our clients but also to staff. The Lean programme provided us with the time and focus to review our processes with a view of simplifying them. The results were amazing. We successfully implemented all projects which resulted in cost savings to ourselves and our clients. Additionally, it allowed us to streamline our approach to certain elements of our business resulting with smarter ways of working. The skills learned on this course have been implemented across our business. We are using these on a regular basis and have found them to be extremely beneficial. We would definitely recommend all companies to partake in this course.
I had previously completed a Business Growth programme and found the combination of group workshops and one-to-one business coaching highly effective. The Business Leadership programme was more in-depth and allowed us to build on what we learned before. It also stepped up the amount of one-to-one business coaching - this helped us to drive on and implement changes in our business. We saw immediate results. Highly recommended."

The IMI Diploma in Leadership has been a fantastic experience. The lecturers, the course leader and his support, the content, the shared experience of the other participants, all contribute to a thoroughly enjoyable learning journey.This is actually my third IMI Diploma so once I have completed my Integrated Assignment, I will have achieved a Masters Degree. I have learned so much and critically, I have been able to apply this learning to my business. The ManagementWorks initiative has made the IMI Diploma programmes more affordable but more than that, by offering them in Dublin, Cork and Galway, it has made them more accessible. Highly recommended!
Joerg Mueller, Managing Director
I wasn’t sure if LEAP’s approach would work with our accountancy practice but the clarity and focus of the programme drove real improvements in our company performance.

I have recently completed the IMI Diploma in Strategy & Innovation and would highly recommend it to other SMEs. The content is relevant and applicable, the calibre of the IMI lecturers and guest lecturers is phenomenal, and the mix of participants means that you learn a great deal from the experience in the room. The fact that SMEs can access the programme at a fraction of the normal rate through the ManagementWorks initiative is a huge bonus.
The Business Growth programme has acted as a catalyst to move my business forward in a structured fashion with a focus on growth in terms of both sales and profitability. It has helped me refresh on the theory I had forgotten and has taught me lots of things I will never forget
