Are you a future manager at OsloMet?

This autumn, OsloMet is starting up a management development programme called "Vil jeg bli leder? Program for potensielle ledere" / "Do I want to become a manager? Programme for potential managers" to give employees an opportunity for development in future key roles at OsloMet and to find potential managers internally.

The management development programme «Do I want to be a manager?» aims to give employees an opportunity to develop in the management context, by introducing them to the role of manager in an academic community and, at the same time, providing insight into what is expected of managers in general and at OsloMet in particular.

The target group is employees who are motivated to learn more about management and who are considering taking on positions such as programme coordinator / head of department, administrative manager or other key roles such as research group leader or project manager.

About the programme

The content of the programme is adapted to the management skills required for different key roles, and will be relevant even if you do not apply for a position as a manager or become a manager after the programme has concluded.

The topics of the programme are:

  • Modern theories on management and leadership
  • Management in academia and OsloMet as the context for management
  • Organisational culture and culture-building
  • Efficient teams and management groups
  • Personal management qualities and using one's own and others’ strengths
  • Self-management, time management and prioritisation
  • Tools such as guidance of colleagues, chairing meetings etc.

Session-based programme

The programme is session-based and includes two two-day sessions and one one-day session in autumn 2018. The sessions will be organised as a mix of lectures, exercises, group work, sharing of experience and reflection. Participants must be able to attend all sessions in order to be accepted to the programme.

The process of selecting candidates takes place in cooperation with the individual faculty/department and your manager with HR responsibility. Participants are not guaranteed a management position after completing the programme, and nor are they obliged to apply for management positions.
