Program Overview

Ashridge’s Fast-Track Advanced Management Program focuses on developing the key skills and knowledge that executives need, across four central themes, in order to excel in general management and leadership positions.

The four themes are:

  • Providing leadership: understanding yourself and what it takes to be a leader; working out your own leadership model and learning how to make it work in practice
  • Making the most of people: developing tools and techniques for making the most of your people; influencing widely and winning support; being impactful and personally effective
  • Driving growth and realizing results: learn how to turn strategy into action; manage change when it matters; find routes to growth and make innovation a reality for your organization
  • Setting direction: understanding your organization, its strategy and financials; working out how to win customers, achieve the business goals and remain sustainable.

These themes are derived from extensive research carried out by Ashridge across a broad range of industries around the globe.
