Level 1



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 days and runs in many locations, some of which are run by our ‘host organisations’ – the course content remains the same.
