One of the objectives of IPE is to help the CPSEs and various government departments in their capacity-building endeavour through Management Development Programmes.
In the past 57 years of its existence, IPE has trained many senior government officers through short-duration MDPs. It has conducted nearly 1300 programmes for around 46000 practicing managers in various types of programmes over the years. During 2020-21, about 18 programmes were conducted, mostly in the virtual mode. Apart from conducting ‘open’ programmes on selected topics in which practicing managers from various organisations are invited to participate, IPE also conducts ’in-company’ programmes which are customized programmes that are designed for a single client organization. Programmes have spanned over all the functional areas of management and various sectoral disciplines. Customized programmes on General Management, Supply Chain Management, Project Management, Information Technology, Operational Excellence, Corporate Social Responsibility etc. have been conducted for officers of the State and Central Governments and practicing managers of Public and Private Sector Organizations.
The sweeping changes in the corporate world consequent upon liberalization, privatization and globalization, the convergence of technologies and the growth of the Internet have unleashed competition both in the domestic and international markets. The current competitive era demands that managers keep abreast of developments and be ahead of the needs of their organization.
In the emerging learning society, knowledge has become an important tool in the corporate world. Managers have recognized the need to update their knowledge and skills to deal with rapidly changing situations and developments in the marketplace. IPE shares its knowledge and expertise to build corporate India’s global competitiveness and the government’s facilitation role.
IPE’s strength lies in its diverse faculty traits and experience of nearly five and a half decades of training public and private sector executives. Experts from the Corporate sector also are included in the faculty team as and when required to make the programmes contemporary and practical. The programs are either customized in-house programs designed to suit an organization’s needs, or open programs where participants from different organizations attend.
In IPE’s quest towards becoming a totally integrated institute with a national presence, Management Development Programs (MDPs) play a crucial role. The objective of the MDPs is to help improve management systems through competency building at various levels in the corporate, government and non-government sectors to take on leadership roles in various positions– individually and collectively. IPE devises and designs customized programs to meet the specific needs of various organizations, in both the public and private sectors. These programs pertain to general management as well as various functional areas. The programs can be conducted at the IPE campus or at a location designated by the client organizations.
In essence, the MDPs epitomize the quest for knowledge that ties together the IPE faculty and the industry through mutual exchange. The MDP’s two-way learning process percolates to the Institute’s PGDM programs through case studies of current business situations. As a result, IPE can produce leaders with not only the tools to build what tomorrow will be, but also with the knowledge of today that work effectively. The Institute has been organizing MDPs for the past 57 years and these interventions have helped IPE to become a totally integrated institute.
Customized training programs and executive development interventions can be delivered at the designated venue of the client organization. The training programs are designed to help government, public and private business organizations to enhance their competence, performance, productivity, and profitability. The Training Division offers a cafeteria approach to in-company learning /training, which enables the client organization to choose training modules that meet their HRD needs. IPE can design and conduct such customized training programs as per the client organization’s choice, or in combination with other modules. The duration generally ranges from 1-15 days.
Programmes have been conducted in the past few years in various functional areas and sectors including programmes in Project Management / Supply Chain Management / Commercial Accounts and Financial Management / Pooling Resources for Optimum Results / Board Development Programme / Human Resources and Personnel Management in SLPEs / Best Practices for Resource Optimization / Manufacturing Excellence / Best Result Through Competitive Advantage Analysis / Rural Marketing / Project Formulation, Project Evaluation & Project Management / Strategic Planning for Self-Sustainable Growth / Soft Skills / Frontiers of Finance / Cyber Security and Cyber Laws / Managerial Effectiveness / CSR and Sustainability / Companies Act / Finance for Non-Finance Executives, etc.
‘Open’ programs draw participation from across different industries in the public and private sectors. They are spread over 2 to 6 days and organized in areas such as Strategic Management, Marketing Management, Financial Management, Accounting & Finance for Non-Finance Executives, HR Development, Organizational Behavior, Industrial Relations, CSR, Sustainable Development, Information Technology, Supply Chain Management, Project Management, International Capital Markets and New Financial Instruments.
Expert faculty in the respective areas identify topics of contemporary interest. Programmes and nominations are sought from various organizations for participation and they are conducted at the IPE campus. Residential facilities are also offered to the participants when required.
