Leeds Business School - Leadership & Management

Lean Leader Programme

Aimed at Directors and MD level personnel and decision makers within their organisations, this programme is based on the principles of Six Sigma to examine and advise on an organisation's way of running and how to improve its productivity and time efficiency.

Lean Leader Programme

We hold an exclusive regional franchise to deliver Institute of Director (IoD) programmes and have been a recognised provider of executive governance programmes for over 20 years, since 1991.

The IoD programmes are ideal for directors, senior executives, entrepreneurs, owner managers and for those who aspire to work at a strategic boardroom level in the private, public or not for profit sectors. For directors wishing to build their qualification further, the IoD Certificate and Diploma in Company direction can be used to progress to become a Chartered Director and gain fast track access on the MSc in Executive Leadership.

You will have ongoing opportunities to network, share ideas and learn from the practical experiences of other like-minded business leaders. Our delegates come from a range of companies including Asda, British Nuclear Fuels plc, British Sugar plc, Yorkshire Electricity, Seabrook Crisps Ltd, Lloyd's Bank Insurance, Meadowhall Centre Ltd, and Friends Provident International.

There are three stages to the IoD's development programme:

  • Stage 1: Certificate in Company Direction

    This comprises of four modules which can be attended separately or if all four are completed and passed you will be awarded the Certificate in Company Direction

  • Stage 2: Diploma in Company Direction

    This can be completed after all the Certificate courses have been attended. It is the final stage before you can be considered to apply for the chartered Director status.

  • Stage 3: Chartered Director

    Delegates can only move towards gaining their Chartered Director status once the Certificate and Diploma levels of the course have been completed. The coveted Chartered Director status is achieved through a series of assessments of your professional practice and is held as the definitive qualification for directors today.

Deatils of all stages of the programme can be found below.
