Management training – ITD

Management training is required  by anyone new to the manager role, or who is expecting to take on a management role. Management principles apply to direct line managers and dotted line or project managers.

With project managers the emphasis is on motivation and timely completion of tasks to the correct standard.

With people managers the emphasis is on managing diverse people in a group working with internal or external clients.

Management training in 2015

Management training from ITD is practical and focuses on your requirements and the improvements you need to see in your organisation. It needs to be practical and a balance of researched theories, experience and practical application. Ideally clients want their people to be able to apply new ideas straight away in their role and with their people. The unique ITD action planning tool will give your people the best opportunity to do just that.

Management training case study

Cambridge Cognition is the leading global provider of cognitive assessment software for use in clinical trials, academic research and healthcare provision – advancing research, diagnosis and treatment in mental health worldwide.


The business has experienced the typical growing challenges of any organisation experiencing growth in a technological field. A new role of team leader was created to oversee teams of people in all the different departments.


The need was to help these team leaders with a comprehensive overview of managing people.


We met with the team leaders and senior management to gain a good understanding of both the training needs but also the business culture. The latter is important for us to put the training into context of the participants’ reality.

We then designed a programme of one day training interventions spread over 6 months:

Part 1

  • Challenges of managing people.
  • Definition of managing & team leader roles.
  • Team meetings; purpose, structure, practice.
  • 121s; purpose, structure, practice.

Part 2

  • Review of personal actions; what worked, what didn’t, what needs further work.
  • Handling difficult situations; bad news, redeployment, conflict.
  • Managing disruptive people who are otherwise good performers.
  • Personal action plans

Part 3

  • Review of personal actions.
  • Managing performance.
  • Creating the right culture in your team.
  • Managing upwards.
  • Building relationships with other teams.
  • Celebrating success.
  • Action plans.
