How agile and adaptive is your management structure and team?

Now more than ever, companies need to be able to adapt, build resilience and be ready to innovate. That means having highly effective management.

Management Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (mKTPs) are designed to help businesses deepen their management expertise and increase their management capability and effectiveness by linking them with Business Schools to deliver a strategic management project.

This webinar tells you everything you need to know about mKTP, about how you can apply for mKTP funding, and also includes insights from companies already engaged in mKTP.

More information

As businesses change and have to find new ways of working in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, they will need to consider how to become more resilient.  Evaluating management practices and leadership structures are pivotal to improving productivity, helping businesses plan ahead, adapt to challenges and build survival and success for the short, medium and longer term.

How have businesses responded in previous economic crises? How can business models adapt and businesses pivot to counter and overcome challenges? We look at how mKTP can help navigate the journey ahead, providing expertise and support to help businesses succeed.

Funded by the UK government department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy through Innovate UK, mKTPs can help organisations increase efficiency, adapt to new challenges and develop deeper resilience. To date 24 mKTPs have been funded by this programme and this webinar tells you all you need to know about how mKTPs work and how to apply for one. 

What are KTPs?

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are dynamic, three way partnerships that link a business, an expert academic team and a suitably qualified graduate. Together the KTP team collaborates to deliver a strategic project – sharing expertise, experience and resources to bring about change, embed knowledge and deliver growth. A unique type of match-funding, KTP is all about collaboration, with projects lasting from between 12 months to three years. Since the programme started, more than 12,000 KTP projects have made innovation happen right across the UK and in all sectors of the economy. 

What the Webinar will cover:

The webinar is your chance to discover more about how KTPs work, and what the specific opportunity is for companies that may wish to participate in a Management KTP.  KTN’s specialist Knowledge Transfer Advisers will provide a guide to the application process, the management areas covered by the mKTP and the types of companies most likely to benefit from participating in a mKTP.  There will be a chance to hear from a company partner involved in a mKTP project.

  • Glasgow-based glass specialist,  IPIG, in partnership with the University of the West of Scotland are using their mKTP to “undertake a market led, strategic change and business development project. Our mKTP will also look at how to optimise business processes and management systems and how best to integrate a customer-centric culture and greater strategic agility”.

In just an hour, this webinar will provide a comprehensive guide to mKTP so you have all the information you need to apply in time for the current mKTP funding competition.
