The programme for management development is faculty-overreaching and is located in Dept. HR in HiOA's Central Department for Organisation and Corporate Governance (ORV).
Management development aimes at providing OsloMet's managers with updated and relevant competence in response to changing demands. The purpose of the enterprise-integrated management development programme is:
All OsloMet’s managers are offered competence raising measures and meeting places across the organisation.
An important part of the preparation for recruitment to management positions is to identify potential managers within OsloMet. In autumn 2018, we are running a short programme for employees who are interested in management and are considering a management role as a relevant career path.
Many of the management positions at OsloMet have fixed-term contracts and as a consequence management replacements occur frequently. Furthermore, several of the fixed-term contracts run out simultaneously, which means that we every now and then have quite a few new managers at the same time. Replacements also happen in permanent contract managerial positions, in order to provide the college with new managers. Thus, in the management development programme emphasis is placed on developing good replacement processes, as well as providing new managers with support through an internal mentoring scheme and a separate programme developed for them.
In the autumn of 2017 two new programmes aimed at the management of the core business were started up.
Managers may sign up for independent courses within defined subjects or tools as needed. Subjects may include meeting culture, the employer's managerial prerogatives, conflict management, financial management etc.
The courses are published through the HiOA Academy’s course calendar, where you can read course descriptions and sign up.
