The ILM Level 6 Award in Management has been designed to provide practising or potential senior managers with a solid foundation for their formal development in this role.
This concise qualification also forms a valuable bridge from Level 5 to Level 7, with the additional benefit of allowing 12 credits to be carried forward to a Level 7 Certificate or Diploma in Executive Management, or 6 credits towards a Level 7 Certificate or Diploma in Strategic Leadership. Therefore it is an ideal qualification for organisations seeking incremental management development for its personnel.
The Award consists of two mandatory units. In ‘Developing the executive manager’ participants collect and analyse feedback on their personal management practice and effectiveness. This information is then evaluated against significant management theories / models and schools / trends in management thinking. To finish the unit, participants identify strengths in their own management practice and prepare an action plan to address areas for improvement.
In the second unit of the Award, ‘Critical thinking and research skills in management’, participants critically review an influential theory or model of best practice that is relevant to their role. This unit also concentrates on selecting and applying an appropriate research technique into personal management and leadership practice.
