APPLIED WORK MANAGEMENT SKILLS

Organizations are operated by teams of people with tight work schedules and financial budgets to achieve and deliver objectives such as production output.

A manager or team leader is appointed to manage the work activities and the people involved to achieve certain outcome as required by the customers of senior management.

As a manager, supervisor or team leader, the person appointed must have certain crucial skills such as leadership and problem – solving ability, besides the ability to negotiate and manage successful change at the work place.

For these reasons, the ANZ Institute Certificate in Applied Management covering some of the modules listed earlier are designed to equip the new managers or team leaders to undertake their roles more effectively and efficiently.

The successful completion of learning and assessment is an indication to the company’s management of the learner’s preparation for such roles.

FINANCIAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT SKILLS

The modern economic environment today is entirely driven by financial considerations and objectives. In everyday living, whether in commercial activities or family life, financial issues are frequent and varied, and they are unavoidable. At a personal level, it can involve tax planning, investment of retirement funds and management of family assets or savings.

In the business environment, corporate executives and managers are often responsible for budgets and control of costs, achievement of sales revenue, or making investment decisions on asset replacement or divestment of business units. Without appropriate understanding of the financial issues or financial intelligence, these managers and leaders of their operating units are hapless and beholden or reliant on their accountants and other financial experts.

Effectiveness and efficiency in managing financial resources may be compromised by a lack of financial knowledge. For those working in the financial services industry such as banks, the level of financial knowledge and skills required is more sophisticated.

For this reason, at ANZ Institute, financial resource management skills are designed accordingly for executives in the banking environment and for those in the non-bank sector corporate sector, to meet their respective roles.

Delivery Of ANZ Institute Learning Programs

All ANZ Institute learning programs are available through self-paced e-learning mode, leveraging on the global electronic networks. With this e-learning mode, the learners and the employer organization have full flexibility in acquiring knowledge and learning at anytime and anywhere, thereby minimizing time for travelling as well as reduce the risk of bio-hazards associated with large crowds of people, both during travel and at the learning locations. Besides, e-learning enables repeat learning to help knowledge retention, unlike the conventional workshop learning.

The e-learning mode also provides consistency in the dissemination of knowledge and learning content across a large number of employees which would not be possible through conventional classroom training and learning, especially with different training facilitators for a same subject matter. This also enhances staff satisfaction as every staff can learn at the same time and would have the same opportunity and time for career advancement instead of being disadvantaged by queuing behind in the lengthy training schedule.

For the employer, there is the added advantage of lower human capital development costs while the e-learning is also a strategic tool to identify employees with strong motivation to pick up new knowledge and skills for the organization’s business activities. Human resource deployment strategies can then be formulated to meet the circumstances.

In deserving situations where employees need further learning support, workshop learning sessions can be arranged to complement the e-learning mode, though at additional costs. This blended learning works well to help reduce the overall cost of training and development while supporting those employees who are keen to learn new skill competency.

Partnership

ANZ Institute believes in work-based education through blending work requirements with appropriate knowledge so that the learning is directed to achieving performance at work. The result of good learning should be demonstrated by the ability to apply knowledge to problem situations at the work place. ANZ Institute complements the various institutions of higher learning like the universities, rather than compete with them, to enrich the well – being of people particularly the underprivileged and the underserved. The ultimate outcome is the creation of human capital for a sustainable life.

In this context, ANZ Institute partners with industry subject matter experts in management practice and members of the academia for knowledge contribution. It will continue to work with business employers, institutions of higher learning, and the broader community to build and enhance human capital through appropriate blending of knowledge and skills together. We believe that this is wonderful social enrichment exercise, and a great way for everyone to fulfil or contribute to corporate social responsibility.
