The Australian Institute of Management and The University of Western Australia present this 3-day program facilitated by Professor Tim Mazzarol.
The crucial need for the CMSDP
While there are many general management and development programs on the market, most do not meet the specific requirements of this sector, which has acknowledged the need for a dedicated course which captures the unique nature of the co-operative enterprise business model.
Many aspects of the way co-operative and mutual enterprises are managed are similar to more conventional businesses. However, there are also many important differences. These relate to areas such as their governance, distribution of share capital and voting rights, human resources, communications, marketing and strategic purpose.
