Innovative intensive learning


The need for middle leaders with expertise in leading teams and innovation is particularly acute in the regional innovation system (including Greater Bay Area), the Asia Pacific region and beyond.


In many cases, leaders are appointed for their subject-area or pedagogical expertise but lack formal training or expertise in leadership.


Changing educational needs and increasingly competitive market environments make leadership more demanding for middle managers.
