Transforming performance through capability development

Many organisations are experiencing unprecedented rates of change as new technologies and business models emerge more rapidly than ever before – and customers’ expectations are higher than ever before.

The IfM has expertise in a number of areas which help companies make the most of their opportunities and address the challenges they are facing. Cambridge researchers are working in these areas to develop new ideas and approaches which are then turned into tools, techniques and processes which organisations can apply themselves.

In our capability development programmes we share our methods with delegates and give them the practical skills they need to implement these within their own organisations.


Through short programmes based on key areas of IfM expertise

  • Participants learn new approaches – based on the latest thinking by some of the world’s leading experts – to tackle major organisational challenges.
  • They apply these approaches to real issues they are facing which helps to embed the learning while having an immediate impact on the business.
  • As well as developing individuals’ expertise, the organisation builds its team capability through group learning – establishing a shared vision, skill set and sense of purpose.
