MCE programmes alternate practical application of individual and team learning.
As Confucius once said: “Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Let me do and I understand”, (Confucius).
Our delivery and facilitation style aims at sustained behaviour change through doing, which leads to improved performance and business results.
In comparison with the classical Business school approach, our Faculty have built their knowledge based on 15+ years of active corporate life and experience. Theory is only used when necessary and references to textbooks are used as supplementary reading, only given in order to go deeper in certain subjects.
Interactive & Collaborative
Increased knowledge depends on exposure to new situations, experience and practice. Therefore we reinforce the learning with group exercises, case studies, real play and role play and business projects, during the course of the programme. Peer challenges help position the knowledge from a work perspective, and Faculty coaching helps delegates to view it from a distance and avoid common mistakes. Participants and other members of the group challenge and motivate one another, share ideas and forge professional bonds.
Exposure to Tools and Techniques
We only use tools and techniques which have proven effectiveness in our sessions and practical exercises. Our Faculty also show the strengths and limitations of tools and techniques so participants can identify the best situations for application.
Challenging & Stimulating
The MCE team for this programme creates a learning environment that is invigorating, demanding, and enjoyable.
Participants are able to balance thought-provoking debate and analysis with self-reflection and personal development.
An Integrated Blended Design
A carefully constructed series of sessions that blends faculty lectures, case studies, videos, group work, project work and individual exercises so that participants experience a consistent and meaningful learning path.
In order to achieve business and learning objectives, a programme needs to focus on the right content, delivered in a format that supports learning. The pedagogic principles and considerations behind the design of the programme are based on the ROPES model.
ROPES model is:
ROPES model is:
Review and Relate – learners relate the topic to prior knowledge to stimulate linkages
Overview – clarifies the objectives with this training element
Presentation – the content itself
Exercise – applying the content by doing which deepens the learning
Summary – assess performance and make the transition into participant’s daily work
This ROPES format generates optimal learning and makes the most of the experience for participants.
