12Faces has assembled our most popular resources into Continuing Professional Development, or CPD, Training Materials. Improve your business in a particular focus area using these resources.
They are grouped into:
Campaigns (C): improve your business with multi-month campaigns. Examples include T90: Turnaround for Troubled Business; O100: Optimise a business ready for growth.
Skill Modules (SM): busy business leaders can use these month-long sprints in a specific skill. Examples include Cash flow, the power of the 80/20 Rule.
Do you want something more comprehensive to continue your professional development?
Leaders Briefings (LB): are short trainings to provide you with:
background briefing on a topic for general understanding. Especially when discussing with an outside provider or
general understanding of a 12Faces topic quickly. You can decide later if you want to learn more with a longer training module.
Use these CPD Training Materials to improve your business or improve your personal understanding of management. Choose specifically what you need, when you need it. Your self-improvement in business management will pay off.
