Continuous Development Programme

September 2011 News

Local security consultant, Danie Liebenberg, is launching a Continuous Development Programme he designed for the guarding industry. The Continuous Improvement Programme was developed to meet the increasing need for the re- and up-skilling of managers who work in the security industry.

The programme provides a practical means for managers to get the answers to the sometimes difficult questions such as ‘How do we find good people who will enhance our business?’ Or ‘How do we protect our profit margins from extinction?’

The programme consists of six consecutive monthly cycles. Each cycle commences with a one-day workshop, during which various topics are covered in four work sessions. At the end of each workshop delegates receive assignments to be completed at home, and returned two weeks later at a breakfast seminar. Guest speakers present various topics of interest to the delegates’ work life at the breakfasts. Delegates receive feedback on their completed assignments at the beginning of each workshop.

New delegates can enter the programme at the start of any one of the cycles, and exit the programme once they have completed all six cycles. The sequence of attendance is not important. Delegates should hold management positions, or be in the process of being groomed for management positions. While the programme deliberately avoids being stuffy and overly complicated, a fair overall understanding of the world of business is needed to keep up. It is therefore most suitable for middle and senior managers.

The total cost for the full programme is R10 500 per delegate. Payment can be made in six monthly payments of R1750 each. Delegates who pay in full in advance qualify for a R1000 discount off the total fee (delegates cannot register for only part of the programme).

Programme venues

The Programme is offered in the following provinces to enable delegates throughout South Africa to participate:

* Gauteng – Johannesburg

* KZN – Durban

* Eastern Cape – Port Elizabeth

* Western Cape – Cape Town

* Free State – Bloemfontein
