Essential Business Skills Overview

All organisations require high performing teams working together towards a common goal.  In doing so, organisations are inevitably faced with risks to their business and operations.  Organisations need to remain competitive and viable so they must continually monitor and improve performance in all areas of the business.  To do this organisations need to implement improvements and too many times these improvement projects fail to fully meet stakeholder expectations.

The four Essential Business Skills courses aim to address some of the key challenges faced by organisations irrespective of their size, complexity or tenure.

These courses target business practitioners that are looking to better manage some of these challenges.  They are also offered to auditors that would like a better understanding of these topics so that they can add more value to the organisation, improve audit outcomes and assist in the achievement of the organisation’s objectives.

The Essential Business Skills courses are generally presented in the following order although the sequence is not mandatory and can be taken in any order.  The courses can also be taken individually as required.
