Cambridgeshire Management Forum

Cambridgeshire is awash with new and innovative businesses, but when it comes to general management and business skills – needed to help our companies grow – then the picture is not so rosey.

To this end, an on-line resource for business managers in Cambridgeshire has just been launched. This new local initiative is led by the Cambridgeshire Management Forum with funding provided by EEDA through the Greater Cambridgeshire Partnership – and developed in conjunction with the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) Cambridgeshire. It aims to provide support and practical guidance for managers locally.

Central to this is a practical and interactive website, www.camf.org.uk. This is a comprehensive resource centre for managers keen to undertake personal and professional development. It also acts as a gateway to resources, courses and to the best and most appropriate learning available in the region.

“Our intention is to provide local managers with a powerful resource,” said Keith Nelson, Director of the Cambridgeshire Management Forum. “Our vision for Cambridgeshire is to be a world leader in leadership and management skills. This resource will help our managers to be more aware of the opportunities available to them to further both their personal development and ultimately to assist the growth in the size of their company.”

What can managers expect to find on the web site?

By logging on they can immediately access a wide range of information, which is completely free, including: • An on-line management training needs analysis designed to assess an individual’s managerial perfomance. The result is an individual report highlighting potential development needs and guidance on the knowledge and skills required to achieve competence. This has been developed by the Cambridge-based National Extension College (NEC). • Information on searchable databases that list management courses across the Cambridgeshire area. • Details of locally based training providers that offer management development. • Examples and links to best management practice. • Information on current management development opportunities that are partially or fully funded.

Many managers – particularly those in small businesses – may not have the time or resources available to spend a long time searching for relevant training courses. The information on the web-site, making these searches much easier, can be read and downloaded in a matter of minutes.

This virtual Cambridgeshire business centre, known as the Cambridgeshire Management Forum, is a collaborative venture funded by the Learning & Skills Council Cambridgeshire and supported by organisations including the Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce, the Chartered Management Institute, Institure of Leadership & Management, Business Link for Cambridgeshire and the Cambridge Network.

Keith Nelson urges managers to log-on and use the site. “It is in all our interests to raise managerial standards. The website is a simple way to find out what can be achieved.”

Anyone interested can log on to the web site at www.camf.org.uk
