Management Skills and Capacity Development

We are an experienced and qualified team of managers and facilitators who can provide a range of tailored support options for organisations at any stage of their development.

Over the last 30 years, we have provided consultancy support and guidance to SME’s, charities and communities across the globe, working with Boards, management committees and community groups to develop and improve the sustainability of their organisation and to support them with effective decision making during key periods of change.

We deliver our professional services to the highest quality, following ISO 9001: 2015 criteria. Our qualifications – supplied by PNE Development – are also accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM).


Our Five Steps to Management Skills and Capacity Development

Our collaborative and inclusive management approach enables us to work with you to achieve positive, impactful and measurable results in all areas of your business. Whether it’s developing a new business strategy, implementing partnership working, or engaging workforces through periods of organisational change, we can offer the support, guidance and training to enable you to achieve your goals.

1. Initiation

Understanding your organisation’s objectives is fundamental to our approach. Working closely with you, our team of experts provide consultancy to help you determine your goals, objectives and expected outcomes of your programme. During initial discussions, we identify key expertise within our organisation to support and deliver your programme.

2. Design

Once clear objectives are defined, we will design tailored solutions for you, prioritising your organisation’s goals and objectives. We will continue to work with you to refine the programme and ensure all objectives and expected outcomes can be fully met by the proposed programme.

3. Delivery

With the design of the project finalised, we configure the programme delivery methods which may include access to online learning support before launch.

4. Ongoing support

Once launched, we offer ongoing support throughout the programme, always ensuring that it is delivered to the highest standard.

5. Review

We consistently monitor the delivery of our programmes to ensure that all expected outputs are achieved and provide guidance and consultancy throughout. On completion, we provide detailed reviews of the programme against initial objectives.

We were awarded over £2m from the Northern Rock Foundation to develop a network of skills providers and to manage and monitor their delivery performance.

Case Study: Leonardo Da Vinci Transfer of Innovation

We supported the international Leonardo Da Vinci Transfer of Innovation programme to support workers and volunteers in third sector organisations across Europe to gain at least one accredited qualification. We worked with five EU partners to pilot volunteer management online learning materials in Italy, Spain, Lithuania and Poland.
