Rhaglen Datblygu Arweinyddiaeth Prifysgol Kuwait

Our 5-day customised leadership programme for a delegation of mid to senior staff from Kuwait University.

We created the first programme in 2017 and following its success, a second delegation took part in a similar bespoke programme in 2018.

The brief

In October 2017, Continuing Professional Development and Cardiff Business School ran a five day customised leadership programme for 12 management and supervisor level staff from Kuwait University. The key themes explored as part of this programme were process management and administrative workflow automation – shifting from paperwork to automated system, and the changes that progress workflow, human resources and facilitate administrative procedures.

Following the success of the 2017 programme, Kuwait University arranged for a further 10 delegates to visit Cardiff University in October 2018 as part of a leadership development programme, which focused on time management, HR development and innovation management.

The programme

Prior to the delegates’ arrival in Cardiff they were asked to complete a pre-course questionnaire. The responses to the questionnaire provided a valuable insight into the work history, previous training and areas of interest identified by the delegates.

Continuing Professional Development liaised with the academics presenting on the programme to give them an overview of the data provided and to highlight any comments which may be pertinent to their presentation.

The programme covered:

  • teaching delivered by Cardiff Business School
  • presentations from Cardiff University professional service staff
  • tours of Cardiff University campus and facilities
  • visits and networking lunches.

The outcomes and impact

The response to the programme was positive, with participants particularly highlighting their enjoyment of Meeting Management Skills sessions delivered by Barry Evans.

All sessions were given an 88% or above satisfaction rating by the delegates. A very impressive 71% of sessions were given full marks.
