Get your business back on track with a Management KTP
 
During these uncertain times many businesses are concerned about their company’s future. Post Covid recovery means many companies will need to explore new innovative ways of working, from establishing remote offices to completely adopting new business models. Effective management can make the difference between a thriving and failing company, and a part funded Management KTP could be the solution!
 
Just like the highly successful Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) programme, a Management KTP (mKTP) will create a unique 3-way partnership between a company, a team of experienced academics and a qualified graduate. Like KTPs, the projects can last between 12 months to three years.Management KTPs aim to introduce transformational improvement by identifying key, strategic, management-based initiatives to increase business effectiveness and drive company growth.

Core activities covered could include: market analysis, monitoring and targets, operations management, communication and motivation, resource planning, problem-solving, commercial awareness and risk management.

Management KTPs are part funded up to 67% of the total project cost. Management KTPs are co-funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, a department of the UK Government, and Innovate UK.
