In February ICW together with WMG (University of Warwick) delivered the first UK MSc module on Collaborative leadership. 16 representatives from across the ICW community participated in this pilot programme over a 4½ day programme. The course focused on developing both awareness and skills associated with operating collaborative relationships. We are grateful to Bam-Nuttall and Lockheed Martin for providing and presenting valuable case studies to enhance the course.
Dynamic leadership is a key facet of every successful business venture. In the context of managing any partnering, alliance or collaborative programmes, where the delivery process bridges organisational boundaries, the role of the leader is even more crucial. Developing an effective team focus is a challenge in most business environments but where the traditional command and control structure is replaced by cross-functional operations, the coordination and direction of the team is even more complex where motivation and influence become vital to success.
Based on this first running and feedback ICW and WMG have upgraded the course materials and taken on board the constructive input form the delegates. The next course is scheduled for 9-13 November 2015 and WMG will be offering a discount to ICW Executive Network Members.
