Bank Management Training and Education

BC&T is focused on Bank Management Consulting and Bank Management Training. We have added two new categories of subjects to this blog to discuss related subjects and offers of services. To receive detailed information financial conditions please send an email to Clive Wykes at cw@bankstrat.com.

In the Bank Management Training & Education category we will describe our approach and some of the courses available.

General comments

We prefer to organise in-house courses not only because this is a cost efficient option for the client versus public courses, but also because it allows us to tailor-make the course to the clients’ specifications. That offers direct and important benefits to the client, of which:

  • Customised content and training objectives,
  • Customized training duration,
  • Convenient date & training location,
  • Cost efficiency,
  • Confidentiality.

In-house training is desirable if:

  • you have large numbers of staff to train,
  • if you need specific content and teaching approaches,
  • if you want to use internal information and discuss specific internal methodologies and issues,
  • if the trainees are senior officers of the bank or board members.

We underline that our courses are management courses aimed principally at middle and senior management. But we also have introduction level courses directed to entry-level or junior staff. As we adapt the programme to the specific requirement of the client each programme can have different levels of complexity, focus and detail; consequently the programme duration can be from 1 day to 10 days.

Training methodology

Each programme is a mix of classroom sessions and hands-on management sessions.

  • Classroom sessions: we review core concepts from a theoretical perspective, show real life examples and explain, if needed, the technical model required.
  • Hands-on management sessions: the participants apply these concepts and skills in bank management simulation games, role-play case studies and/ or qualitative exercises and case studies.

This dual approach allows an optimisation of the learning experience and facilitates the implementation of the new skills in the day-to-day management responsibilities of the learners.

A deep body of theoretical literature asserts the power of simulations to change behaviour by giving learners and practicing managers the opportunity to apply concepts immediately, experiment and test their assumptions, and learn from their mistakes in a risk-free environment.

Simulations will reinforce business concepts and accelerate learning because they are highly involving, realistic and give immediate feedback about the trainee’s judgment and choices. After the simulation, participants can easily reflect on their outcomes, good and bad, and form memorable conclusions about what they should do when faced with a similar business problem in their organizations. Finally simulations are competitive and fun.

Rather than rewrite a blog on the advantages and use of simulation games in training (also referred to gaming), I suggest you check out what was written on Wikipedia:

A question often asked is: How do we keep our programmes up-to-date? After all, the world of banking is evolving at a rapid pace, especially since the big banking crisis that started in 2008.

The answer is simple. We are primarily bank management consultants working on solving day-to-day management problems of banks in many countries. To achieve the expected results we must have a hands-on approach, and propose solutions for implemented that integrate the current best practices as applicable for each bank. We can then transfer those best practices into our training programmes.

Indicative programme list

The table below indicates some of the available (off-the-shelf) courses that can be organised as they are or adapted to client specifications. The level of depth and the target audience can also be adapted to the requirements.

As we focus on tailor-made in-house programmes pricing is specific to each assignment.
