"Cranfield's Centre for Customised Executive Development has tailored this programme specifically to Mitie's needs"

Mitie, the strategic outsourcing and energy services company, has teamed up with Cranfield School of Management, a world leader in management development and research, to provide its most promising senior operational managers with strategic business education.

The FTSE250 company worked to develop the Executive Development Programme at Cranfield, with an initial pilot of 24 senior managers.

The development programme will target Mitie's most promising senior managers who have not previously received formal, post graduate business education. Approximately 100 people in total completed the programme in its first two years. 

"As Mitie continue to grow their business they have a requirement to grow the capability of their leaders."

The programme will be structured around two 2-day workshops with several 'virtual' modules in between, running over a period of up to six months. The virtual modules will be a mixture of individual and team based projects.

The programme will assist candidates in broadening their facilities management 'mindset' and encourage wider awareness of collaborative business opportunities amongst senior management. The three principal areas that will be covered are account development and retention, margin development and leadership.

Cranfield's Centre for Customised Executive Development has tailored this programme specifically to Mitie's needs, and will providing in-depth feedback to each individual candidate.

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Cranfield on this programme. We are confident that it will offer a key group of people across Mitie the opportunity to further their development, with the support of a globally renowned business school."
