LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Managing Partners' Forum, a professional body that celebrates the value of leadership and management excellence, has named Grant Thornton as having the Best Programme for Leadership Development at its 2015 awards. Judged by an independent panel of subject matter experts, the award recognises the management team whose programme combines a clear analysis of leadership requirements with innovative interventions.
“Grant Thornton is honored by this recognition,” said Ed Nusbaum, Grant Thornton International Ltd's global CEO. "Focusing on leadership development is a top priority as we continually look for ways to help our people unlock their potential for growth at work and in their communities. Congratulations go to all of our people globally for this award."
The Managing Partners' Forum said in giving the award: “Since 2008, Grant Thornton has run the AMP programme which targets rapid development of senior managers. In the intervening years 292 participants across 43 member firms have successfully graduated from AMP and the strength of the programme continues.
“The programme is closely linked to the core values and strategy of the firm and runs on a modular basis, taking participants to Europe, North America and Asia Pacific. A comprehensive curriculum delights participants and makes the firm more able to serve the needs of its clients.
“The judges were impressed with the rigour, detail and inclusiveness of the programme which sets it apart as this year’s winner.”
