Developing Teaming Competencies


Course Learning Outcomes

  • Make an informed decision about the roles that teaming and export might play in their business
  • Distinguish between the technical and adaptive issues involved in teaming arrangements
  • Engage effectively with other businesses that wish to pursue a teaming and/or export strategy
  • Explain the ways in which teaming, global supply chains and export can form part of their organisation’s growth strategy

We take a slight detour here and look closely at the personal and business competencies needed to make teaming really work well. At the end of the day it is about people and the relationships they form.
