This course is an intensive face-to-face training designed to deepen understanding of the changing nature of the process management role during a partnership cycle and explore essential brokering skills. It builds knowledge, insight and expertise for those managing the partnering process from the earliest ‘scoping’ stage to the final ‘moving on’ phase, including the delivery of measurable benefits to all parties. The course is 4 or 5 days long – depending on whether it is residential or not and where is it being held. The course is run in many locations, some of which are run by our ‘host organisations’ – the course content remains the same.
