Key details

Key details

Two-day management information reporting course that teaches skills for delivering easy-to-understand management information and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to fellow professionals and stakeholders.

In the current business climate, improving the flow of key information in your business is critical. Reports that involve a cycle of clarification increase costs and lengthen timelines. Effective information delivery depends on developing and delivering a stakeholder-focused message, so users can swiftly act on the information received.

Our Presenting management information course is ideal for professionals at all levels who are tasked with reporting management information electronically or in print. You learn how to:

  • Use an end-to-end process to project manage information delivery and design clear and comprehensible graphics.
  • Tailor information to the needs of stakeholders.
  • Employ a range of templates to report KPIs in text and graphics.
  • Present information visually using charts and dashboards.
  • Use the pyramid principle of information construction to deliver information at the right level for the right audience.
  • Draft for clarity, and revise for concision.

Presenting management information training is available on-request only, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. We don’t currently offer scheduled (public) Presenting management information courses. This approach means that we can tailor your training to your exact business needs.

We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK. Whilst attending training at our centres, delegates have the use of a computer running licensed Presenting management information software to practice the techniques taught.
