IMCA Socrates: Accrediting Managers at Work, professional development, certification, management development
Managers learn best at work...
The International Management Centres Association (IMCA) is a professional association established in 1964 and a corporation noble granted the right to arms in the UK by the sovereign in 1985. IMCA conducts workplace action learning and awards professional qualifications. IMCA's work is supported by a distinguished Court of Honorary Members and work with more than 60 corporations around the globe. This experience led to the creation of IMCA Socrates™ - the workplace action learning system for management development and professional certification.
The IMCA Socrates™ 'Accrediting managers at work' scheme recognizes and certifies workplace action learning. Unlike other business systems, users are not required to adhere to a standard designed by others. The aim is to use action learning and then to report on the improvements that arise, via a self review format. The scheme is designed to integrate with training and with any type of business activity. Here, professional credit is allocated for applications that yield solutions to workplace issues. By linking inputs and their corresponding outputs, action learners accumulate credit until they have met the certification requirements. The time involved varies from several months to a year.
