Management in Action
Build teams, develop skills, achieve results

For new and existing managers, Management in Action (MiA) has been designed to give a thorough grounding in the skills and knowledge required to become a confident and effective people leader in the New Zealand public service. The programme comprises three modules and draws on a unique blend of theory, research, leading practices and participant experience. 

There are three two-day workshops, online modules, key theories, and Action Learning Groups held over six months to support translating learning into the workplace. Offered as a cross-agency programme, participants will also benefit from collaborating across the public sector and learning about others' roles and challenges.

Entry requirements

  • Offered to public sector managers of people, with support from their managers.
  • We also customise MiA to suit an agency's needs and can provide a tailored, in-house programme. Please contact us to see how it can work for you.

Time and cost commitments

  • The programme runs over six months. Each of the three workshops is for two full days. The Action Learning Groups scheduled between each module are two hours long. There is an online module scheduled between each workshop, and actions to undertake back in the work place.
  • Programmes are held in Wellington.
  • The fee for each participant is $3,695 + GST. Non-member participant fee is $4,300 + GST.
