This week Stu Peters presents highlights from 2012 Manx Executive Challenge final. The challenge is organised by the Chartered Management Institute and aims to help hone the management skills of workers from the public and private sector. The challenge has been running for 15 years, and around 200 managers have taken part.
This time round, the question ‘How does the Isle of Man lead?’ was posed, and teams were tasked with coming up with a ideas to nurture a new sector of the Manx economy or enhance an existing one. The challenge spanned eight months and the teams had to research the subject, compile a report on their findings, and present a set of recommendations to a panel of judges. During the final, the teams were given 15 minutes to present their projects to an invited audience made up of government representatives and members of the business community, before facing questions from the judges.The marks for each team were weighted 30% for their presentation, and 70% for their final report. And on the programme, you’ll hear an edited version of the evening’s proceedings.
