The program is aimed at current senior management and developing business leaders, assisting participants to develop a comprehensive skill set across strategic, tactical and operational competencies.

The benefits of taking part in the program are multiple: participants will have the opportunity to learn how to create game changing strategies, enhance their leadership skills, develop a culture of continual innovation and improvement and apply their acquired knowledge in real-life projects, as well as to undergo a leadership self-assessment, create their own personal development plan, learn and apply concepts in manufacturing during interactive workshops, build a Business Improvement Plan and much more.

The program will cover the period from March to December 2014 and will feature 10 workshops, including 3 full-day workshops covering principles and best practices, 4 half-day workshops for leadership, innovation, 2 on-site Interactive Workshops covering practical application and lean concepts and a  Final Showcase Workshop.

AIDN was able to secure a Victorian Government Manufacturing Productivity Networks grant to undertake the AIDN-Vic Leadership for Manufacturing Excellence program and provide it to members at a heavily discounted rate.

Participation costs for AIDN members amount to $2,500, whereas participation cost for non-members is set at $3,000.

Apart from the 2 on-site sessions, all workshops will be held at: Seminar Room, Ground Floor, Building 2, 574 Plummer Street, Port Melbourne, VIC, 3207.
