Australian School of Industry Service Management (ASIM), a training and consulting provider to the service industry in Australia since 1994,in collaboration with Professor Daniel G. Fuchs, International Hospitality Expert and Professor for Business Studies, are pleased to announce the launch of ASI Online E-Learning Program for Service Managers.
Our mission is to “Provide knowledge and skills to frontline managers wishing to become proactive and visionary managers capable of making a significant contribution to their bottom line results and ensure viability of their service business”.
Organizations today are moving towards flatter management structures, consequently supervisors and frontline managers must be more than good day-to-day managers.
Supervisors and managers traditionally progress to their level as a result of their technical competence and not their leadership skills. However, frontline managers often lack the financial and other business skills as well as leadership skills and the know-how in order to effectively develop their business.
Competition is forcing organizations to be more efficient and competent, and with the current focus on TQM and productivity, managers must be more efficient and able to provide the forward planning and business leadership required for the future.
Brian Simons says: “Service Quality is the Key to winning and keeping customers in today’s competitive business environment. And yet, delivering Consistent Quality Service often falls on the shoulders of under-trained service staff and service managers.
Up skilling service managers and, the service personnel in turn, is the key to delivering Consistent Quality Service. While there are any numbers of general business courses, there is only one course designed by service managers for service managers, the ASI Diploma of Industry and Service Management.
This practical, step-by-step course will guide you through the many aspects of becoming a professional service manager. You will learn what it means to be a leader, how to manage staff and other resources as well as how to prepare and manage a business plan for your service business or service profit centre.”
Whether you are in the service industry or looking at a career change, we recommend that you take a look at the training we provide.
This practical, workshop-style program is written in every day language for easy study and completion. Apart from a couple of specifics, the course content is Universal, World-best frontline management practices and is equally suited to most businesses anywhere in the World.
