Supporting professional development

Continuous learning gives people the skills and knowledge to perform at a high level throughout their careers. It keeps them engaged and motivated and more likely to stay with an organisation that supports them.


Our focused short programmes develop knowledge and practical skills to extend delegates’ capabilities and have an immediate impact in the workplace. They introduce delegates to the IfM’s tools and techniques and show them how they can be put into practice in highly interactive, hands-on, workshop-style courses.


We run these as open courses in Cambridge, giving delegates the opportunity to share ideas and network with people from different sectors. Many of these can also be run in-house, tailored to your particular organisation’s needs.



I’m now much clearer on how we can take practical steps to ensure we achieve our aims in this area [servitization]. The IfM team were clearly experts in the field and did a great job of taking us on the servitization ‘journey’.

Wholly relevant and recognisable with useful tips and reminders of differences in mindsets/practices between corporates and start-ups.

Very engaging and grounded in reality.

Ricardo UK Delegate






The course overall presented some real food for thought and I shall certainly use the tools to more rigorously prioritise our current projects. It was very worthwhile for me.
