Skilled managers and leaders contribute to improved efficiency, productivity and profitability. With the challenges the industry is facing, we need progressive managers and leaders. In the automotive industry there is a widely acknowledged management and leadership skills deficit.
Many people in management and leadership positions have worked their way up through the industry and have received little or no management or leadership training. Yet these managers and leaders will face increased regulations around vehicle emissions, disruptive competitors and demanding customers leading to higher demand for skills. The volatility in the market adds to the pressure on our managers and leaders.
