I have gained so much knowledge about the different aspects of operational management and the theories that underpin leadership styles. It has helped me recognise the leadership style that I demonstrate and it has given me skills for managing conflict and how to set SMART targets which was something I wanted to develop. Ultimately it has helped me gain valuable knowledge on finance and project management which are vital for my future progression.
