Executive Education/Professional Development

Whether you are an individual looking for a chance to gain new skills, a leader wanting to work with a group to further skills and capabilities in a business-critical space or an organisation looking to develop the next cadre of leadership then we can design and deliver something for you.

We offer fully customised learning programs that respond to your requirements, starting with a learning diagnosis process to ensure that any product that is developed is fully appropriate in terms of content and delivery mode.  All of our programs are intellectually-stimulating and delivered in a highly interactive format to ensure that learning is applicable within the workplace. 

Our programs can be delivered as intensive subjects over a few days or can be tailored to be ongoing programs (in an action learning form, for example) where participants are supported as they tackle real-life issues.  Programs can be delivered as residential, campus-based or work-place based in any area of Australia and overseas.  We work to an approach that encourages participants to bring their expertise to the learning experience and to combine this with that of others and our facilitators to generate actionable solutions.

Introduction to cost-benefit analysis

CBA is a method of evaluation that attempts to estimate and compare the total benefits and costs of a proposed project or regulatory change. It calculates the dollar value of the gains and losses for all people affected by the project. If the sum is positive, the benefits exceed the costs and the project increases efficiency and value to society. If it is negative, the opposite conclusion arises. This course is aimed at individuals encountering CBA as part of their work, and is designed to be highly interactive.
