About Management Works

Who are Management Works

The Management Development Council report 2010 identified the need to enhance the level of management capability of small and medium-sized firms. As a result of the research, ManagementWorks was established in 2012 under the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs with a remit to support small to medium enterprises in sustaining and creating jobs.

ManagementWorks is a government-funded initiative of the national training agency Skillnets. They offer a suite of high-impact management development programmes to help business owners, managers and management teams to achieve better results.


Their Approach


Management Works Business Growth and Business Leadership programmes are aimed at Owner Managers. They combine group workshops with one-to-one business coaching.

Their Management Team and Lean Business programmes are both aimed at developing management capability within your wider team. You need everyone in your business to take responsibility for ensuring that your business is being run effectively, profitably, and sustainably. These programmes will help them to do just that.

Their IMI Diploma Programmes are aimed at Managers and Senior Executives who want to develop their management and leadership capability and achieve postgraduate certification at the same time. These can be completed as standalone postgraduate certificate programmes or they can be combined to achieve a Master’s Degree.

“Over two thousand business owners and managers have participated in ManagementWorks programmes since its establishment”
