From the Concepts of ABCDEF Onwards

IfE’s Management Development Programme (MDP) has set up systematic training for various corporations and government departments, among others. It originates from the concepts of ABCDEF, which are as follows:

Managers should realise that to have a positive Attitude, one must go Back to Basics. In various Contexts with various Constraints, one must face Challenges and dare to Change. Communication is one of the facets of transformation. To enhance corporate competiveness, there should be Design of Delights and an End-to-End approach should be adopted to formulate the process in accordance with the goals.

We adopt the FAST complexity concept when developing programmes for our clients. When faced with corporate problems, managers need to be Fact-finders, engaging in Analysis, Selecting Alternatives & Options and Taking Action. These are all personality traits that managers need.

Success Cases

We customised a management development training programme for a range of positions in a number of organisations and corporations in different industries. The programmes lasted for 5 to 15 days. Flexible lesson times meant that the programmes could be arranged on either Saturdays or Sundays. Parts were conducted as work simulations, where participants submitted research proposals combining work and knowledge for maximum effectiveness. The programme contents encompassed group discussions, role plays and case studies to raise participants’ learning efficiency.
