This accredited course follows on the PRINCE2® Foundation course and provides an understanding of how the method works in practice. The course completes the coverage of the contents of Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®, the official manual of the method, which was published by the Cabinet Office (CO) in 2009. The CO's manual explains in its forward: "Today, complex projects often involve several organisations working together in partnership or through contractual agreements to achieve the objectives. PRINCE2® provides a common language between organisations and with external suppliers. It also allows a focus on the Business Case, providing a mechanism to define what the project is trying to achieve, and the rationale and business justification for it." At the end of the course a 2.5-hour multiple choice test takes place, which leads to the sought-after PRINCE2® Practitioner certificate. Course content The course is designed to put the PRINCE2® concepts into practice and to prepare for the test that leads to the PRINCE2® Practitioner certificate. The course begins where the Foundation course left off by going into more detail on each of the themes and processes that make up the method. By the end, the all-important fourth element of the method, which demands that the method is always tailored to fit the project’s environment, is explained and demonstrated. The topics covered include: overview of PRINCE2® the seven PRINCE2® themes the seven PRINCE2® processes tailoring PRINCE2® Teaching and assessment As the practitioner course follows on the PRINCE2® Foundation course, where the method, its philosophy and its terminology are introduced, it focuses on the more intricate aspects of the method. Based on a case study, the method is put into practice through a series of challenging questions that mirror the questions of the formal test. The course consists of a series of interleaved lectures and seminars, but this time the emphasis is on the seminars where the method is put into practice with the help of case studies. The lectures are designed to remind how the method operates while the seminars take on the principles and apply them to a well trodden case study. The comprehensive course handbook, containing all the course’s slides, which most students would have met in the foundation course, is used along with the case study which was also introduced prior to this course. By assuming familiarisation with the method, the course can proceed at a pace that helps the visualisation of the method’s concepts. Each seminar ends with sample multiple choice questions that prepare us for the certificate examination. Fees Fees include lectures, lecture materials, two sample examination papers and the examination. Entry Requirements The course is open to anyone with a PRINCE2 ® Foundation certificate. However, candidates should continue to familiarise themselves with the methods manual and study for around five hours before the first day of training. Study is also required between training days. Candidates cannot sit for the Practitioner exam unless they have passed the Foundation exam. [-]

Music Business Program

Recording Connection Audio School
Campus Full time September 2017 United Kingdom Liverpool

If you’re going to be successful as a record executive, label owner or band manager, you really need to be smart and deliberate regarding your choice of music school. There are many options out there, but many schools charge far too much money and don’t offer any real connection to the music industry itself. [+]

Course Studies in Business Studies in London in United Kingdom. THE RECORDING CONNECTION MUSIC BUSINESS PROGRAM: AVAILABLE IN ALL 50 STATES AND CANADA. With hundreds of locations across the U.S., Canada, Australia and theU.K., the Recording Connection has helped thousands of students find their way in to rewarding music industry careers by placing them as working apprentices (externs) in actual recording studios. Each student is paired with a mentor, a successful working producer/engineer with years of experience and real album credits. We partner with hundreds of music professionals across the globe, many of whom work with Platinum-selling and Grammy-winning artists, to ensure that our students are receiving the best guidance, education and opportunities possible. The Recording Connection's Music Business Program is now enrolling! Are you looking for an exciting, rewarding career as a record executive, music mogul, band manager or other music industry professional? 
Do you have a desire to find fresh, new, talented bands and artists and help them reach a wider audience? Do you wish you had the connections and resources to do so?
 Are you perhaps already managing a few bands and artists but feel you need more industry connections to take it to the professional level? 
Do you have a drive and passion to find the next world music superstar and watch the world sing their songs? 
Do you dream of becoming the next Quincy Jones, David Geffen, Jimmy Iovine or Sam Phillips? 
 Do you have the work ethic and commitment to see these dreams succeed, if only you had the right opportunity? IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO ANY/ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS, THEN IT’S TIME TO CONSIDER YOUR NEXT STEPS VERY CAREFULLY. ARE YOU READY TO TAKE ACTION TO TURN YOUR DREAMS INTO REALITY? DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO MAKE THE TOUGH DECISIONS TO HELP YOU GET THERE? Straight Talk About Your Music Industry Career: If you’re going to be successful as a record executive, label owner or band manager, you really need to be smart and deliberate regarding your choice of music school. There are many options out there, but many schools charge far too much money and don’t offer any real connection to the music industry itself. By choosing one of these schools, you run the risk of taking on career-crushing amounts of student debt for little or no return on your investment. And for someone trying to make it in the music business, that can halt your career before it ever starts. Don’t be that guy or girl. Don’t make the mistake of spending $25,000, $50,000 or $100,000 for a music school education that offers no real path to your future, and don’t make the even more serious mistake of taking on that kind of debt. Let’s be clear: your key to breaking into the music business doesn’t lie in a classroom with a bunch of other students, nor does it lie in some sort of online program that offers you no real feedback. Your path to success lies in the music industry itself—with the people who are actually DOING the work, who can show you the ropes and help you make your own connections. The Recording Connection offers this opportunity with our unique music business training program. Instead of placing you in an overpriced classroom, we place you as a working apprentice (extern) with a real music industry professional who is doing the job you want to be doing. As you follow a structured course curriculum, you’ll gain lots of real-world experience as you work alongside your mentor, and you’ll learn how to make the connections you need in order to succeed (and trust us—success in this business is ALL about connections). Best of all, you’ll gain this experience, knowledge and insider access for a FRACTION of what other music schools charge, so you can graduate with little or no debt and get on with your career. The music industry is a highly competitive field, and it’s the smart ones, the ones willing to think outside the box, who are the ones who rise to the top. For you, that begins with making choices about your education that will actually help your career without crushing you with debt. If you’re serious about beating out the competition to become a successful record executive or band manager, the Recording Connection is here to help! [-]

Developing Personal Influence and Impact

MCE Management Centre Europe
Campus Full time 4 days January 2017 United Kingdom London

Today’s business environment is not easy. Priorities change frequently and you need to get results faster. [+]

Mid-level Managers WHY attend this programme? Today’s business environment is not easy. Priorities change frequently and you need to get results faster. But in companies and organisations, you don’t always have direct control over all the people and elements you need to deliver results efficiently and on time. We all know how stressful and frustrating it can be, trying to get everybody in a project team to deliver their parts of the project. It can also be just working with your colleagues every day, they are just too busy to help you with your project. If you could just get everybody on board and supporting your ideas, it would make life so much easier. It would also save the company time and money. But how do you do this? How do you get others to support your goals and objectives? How do you work your way through internal politics to get the collaboration and resources you need? How do you get all stakeholders on board including your peers, your team, senior management and maybe even customers and suppliers? WHO should attend? If you need to influence people or teams to get things done, then this programme is for you! HOW will you benefit? After taking this programme, you will be able to: Influence the people you need to get your project done and to meet your goals and objectives Manage internal politics and difficult people and overcome resistance Project a stronger, more confident and professional image so that others will listen to you Build, manage and leverage a personal network of colleagues Apply a wider range of high impact influencing strategies to get what you need, regardless of your position or level of authority WHAT will you learn and practice? This programme is facilitated by an experienced manager who has risen up through various organizational positions in multinational organizations to hold a senior position, and has extensive experience using ethical influence to achieve outcomes. You’ll bring your own influence challenges to the programme, and your facilitator will adapt the programme to address the challenges of your group of participants. You’ll get plenty of chance to practice your influence skills through a variety of case studies, exercises and role plays, with feedback from your facilitator and your fellow participants. Module 1: You, Influence and the Managerial Context We will look at the role of influence in strategy implementation – getting things done through people over whom you have no authority – your peers whose collaboration your team needs to meet its own goals and even your superiors whose sponsorship and resource allocation you’ll need to achieve your departmental strategy. We’ll also introduce the basics of influence and you’ll learn about your own influencing style and capabilities. Through case studies, self-assessment, role play, peer discussion, and reflection you will: First, gain awareness of your own influencing style and skill level Build a deeper appreciation and understanding of the role of influence in management Get a conceptual introduction to the essentials of influence - power, politics, persuasion, and strategy implementation/goal achievement Identify your own influencing challenge with respect to implementing your strategy Module 2: Navigate your organization’s politics Like it or not, organizational politics are an integral part of daily working life. They can help or hinder you in strategy implementation. You’ll learn to map the power dynamics in your organization and how to ethically use them to support your strategy implementation. You’ll also learn ways to identify and counter people who are acting overtly or covertly to obstruct your strategy implementation. Through case studies, self-assessment, introduction to concepts, peer discussion and self-reflection, you will: Develop situational awareness and learn to read the dynamics behind organizational politics – what are people trying to achieve? Examine manipulation and influence from an ethical point of view – when is it good and when does it cross over the line? Learn typical influence tactics, and how to defend yourself against them Learn to construct an influence map as a basis for analysis and development of an influence approach Develop your own influence/political map of own strategy implementation challenge and the stakeholders involved, including your own political, power and influence position Module 3: Build networks and coalitions You can’t do it alone; you need people to help you implement your strategy. You’ll need the collaboration of your peers; this means understanding their goals and constraints in relation to yours and in relation to organizational goals, and identifying opportunities for both of you to benefit. It means mapping to their interests, gaining their respect and trust for collaboration. This is a lot easier if you have already built trust and reciprocity ahead of time by creating an informal influence network. Through practical exercises, peer discussion, and self-reflection, you will: Understand the principles behind networking, the power of an informal network, and how to leverage it for your strategy implementation. We’ll look at internal and external networks. The importance of credibility through empathy, honesty, and trust – hard to build, easy to destroy Use the influence map to determine not only what you need, but what your potential coalition partners need in order to be successful – can you help them? More work on your own influence challenge Module 4: Persuade, and win over the resistors How can you communicate with impact, and persuade, or even inspire people to join you? This takes some work on your personal style. How do you deal with difficult people, how can you win over the stubborn resistors?
