These management training packages should equip managers with the skills needed to succeed. They can be used for self-directed learning or to inspire a team. Built around a 25-minute documentary style video, they contain practical advice, based on the experience of leading figures from public and private sector businesses. The kits highlight relevant points, focus attention on the key issues and provide ideas for action within the reader's business. The complete toolkit contains two videos, one uninterrupted version, the other with pauses, prompts and action points, a user manual outlining how to use the toolkit, the key learning points and practical hints for implementation, a workbook for individual use, a manager's guide for team development and a notepad, pencil and folder. In addition, there are budget packs. The budget packs contain one uninterrupted version of the video, a user manual outlining how to use the toolkit, the key learning points and practical hints for implementation, one folder, pad and pencil for note taking.
