The Haines Centre provides Strategic Management Gold Mastery Certifications in our three core practice areas:
Each Gold Mastery Certification consists of three phases:
Phase 1: Learning Phase - candidates attend a workshop in one area of specialization. Check our workshops for in-person or online sessions.
Phase 2: Demonstrate Mastery - demonstrate your understanding of the topic. This is usually done through a 3.5-day workshop. Check our workshops.
Phase 3: Application - demonstrate your application of the concepts, frameworks, models and tools in your own organization or in a client's organization.
