  • The concept of the Job for life still prevalent in business just a few decades ago, no longer exists. This places pressure on the individual employee, who is faced with further pressures as the pace of business life increases and knowledge becomes quickly outmoded and supplanted by new information.As a consequence, organisations are beginning to re-evaluate the way they look at training and developing their employees need to take more personal responsibility for the learning they take away from training programmes.For organisations, there is a need to align their choice of training with the strategic objectives of the organisation.
  • CIM has a portfolio of qualifications that seek to prepare marketers for marketing roles at various levels throughout the organisation – for those at the very beginning of their career to those who have a breadth of marketing experience and wish to contribute at a senior level within the organisationThe Chartered Postgraduate in Marketing is a new qualification – and it replaces our old Professional Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing - designed to develop skills and competencies that employers have identified as being essential for marketers working at a senior level, namely:Planning, prioritising and decision makingThinking strategically and creativelyBalancing options, competing needs and interestsCommunicating, influencing and leadingEvaluating
  • As well as developing practical skills, the qualification: The Chartered Postgraduate Diploma challenges individuals to manage issues both systematically and creatively, demonstrating sound judgments and rationale Encourages them to be adaptable, show originality, insight, and critical and reflective abilities in dealing with and resolving problems Evaluate and integrate theory into a wide range of situationsAssessments test students’ ability to apply their knowledge in complex and unpredictable situations, such as might be found in real business
  • Emerging Themes: This is the first unit of the new Chartered Postgraduate Diploma, which has been designed to challenge students’ perceptions about how changes in the immediate and wider business environment are impacting on the sector and on the practice of marketing within it. This unit provides a stretch for some students who may previously only have thought and functioned at an operational level, and it is our intention that studying this unit will help them to gain a wider, more lateral perspective.Analysis & Decision: This unit gives students the skills to be able to carry out a strategic marketing audit (internal and external), evaluate and prioritise their strategic options, and make and justify decisions based on the audit. Their analysis needs to be financial as well as qualitative, and students are expected to be able to apply a range of relevant strategic model in their analysis and decision making.Marketing Leadership & Planning: The third unit builds on the first two and is about developing the skills to plan strategically and to lead the implementation of those plans. This unit considers the resource implications of implementing plans that affect the whole organisation and how to manage the changes that are often involved. It considers concepts of power, trust and commitment in the context of negotiating change with key stakeholders.Managing Corporate Reputation: is the final unit of the first stage of the qualification, and it addresses some of the points that Chris has just discussed, namely, what makes up an corporatepersonality - its culture and strategy; how its corporate identity is demonstrated – through symbolism and behaviour, particularly through communications; and corporate reputation – credibility, trustworthiness, reliability and responsibility. It also addresses corporate communications and how organisations build reputational platformsLeading Marketing – Stage 2 of this qualification is one large unit that encompasses the design, implementation and evaluation of a live strategic business project. It aims to develop some of the high level skills that are required to perform at a senior level within the organisation, which were identified by the employers we consulted with in our developmental process.
