SIGNIFICANCE AND RELEVANCE OF THE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS

 

This two weeks training program aims to prepare executives in Ports and Terminals – authorities, developers, operators, financers, shipping companies, ports and logistics service providers, port consultants, other allied industries and services; to assume higher level of roles and responsibilities by providing them an overall framework of Ports Business. The program provides the basic concepts, tools, information and knowledge to participants about the Ports and terminals.

Cohesive functioning of all the departments facilitates achieving common goals and objectives. The program provides a platform to the participants to develop a comprehensive understanding and knowledge on ports and terminal management, administration and efficient operations.

While majority of Ports and terminals executives possess requisite knowledge and expertise in their assigned roles and responsibilities, very few claim to have an overall understanding and clarity in the integrated functioning of the ports and terminals organizations. Clarity and understanding of overall comprehensive functioning of the port and terminal helps in mutual co-operation among departments thereby delivering seamless and smooth services to customers for customer delight and improved level of financial performance. This in turn may lead to satisfied stakeholders in the ports and terminals. In a constantly changing environment of the ports and terminals industry, with high degree of value migration; every port and terminal needs to deliver best value to the customers. All port and terminal organizations need to develop their manpower to be prepared with requisite training in order to respond to changing demands in important aspects of services parameters in a proactive manner.

The 5 days Classroom training of the Management Program encompasses all major and important functions of the ports and terminals – their basic practices, international norms and standards to benchmark against best practices at the operational level. Continuation in the next 5 days of the program leading to Advanced Management Program consolidates all important functions and decision making process at strategic level.

 

With a total of over eight decades of experience in ports and terminals planning, development and operations; experienced course directors from Global Ports Forum have put in their expertise to share the best practices and benchmarks in line with world class standards and norms, making the participants to aim in quest of excellence.
