BUSINESS and commercial


Bridging innovation and market: improve business acumen to result in engineering success.

Modern engineers must extend beyond their core role of designing and developing innovations to also encompass strong business acumen alongside their technical expertise. Business skills play a crucial role in converting innovative ideas into products that align with the market needs. 

These courses will enable you to acquire critical business skills that can boost your value to any organisation and help you with strategy development, risk management, stakeholder influence, and revenue impact. You will be able to understand and map the journey of a product from inception to market, manage resources effectively, and deliver sustainable growth. 

The course was useful and gave me the skills that I can use in my day to day, strategies that I can apply to create value, reduce costs and focus on what's important.
