Nigeria is a diverse and rapidly growing economy, with an increasing need for skilled and competent managers to drive progress and innovation. To address this need, management seminars and training programs have become increasingly popular throughout the country.
There are various types of management training programs available in Nigeria, catering to different industries and levels of expertise. These trainings may come in the form of in-person workshops, online courses, or even immersive boot camps. Some popular topics covered by these programs include leadership development, human resources management, project management, and financial management. By participating in these trainings, professionals can not only gain new skills and knowledge, but also expand their network and improve their marketability in the job market.
However, there are several issues that need to be addressed for management training to achieve its full potential. First and foremost is standardization. The task of standardizing the quality of training programs in Nigeria rest fully with the Centre for Management Development (CMD), a government agency that serves as the operational arm of the Nigeria Council for Management Development NCMD ACT 2022 (as amended), with the Council as the regulator of the management training and consultancy sector in Nigeria. The Centre’s mandates include the stimulation, promotion and coordination of management training, consultancy, research, and education. It would be helpful if the CMD can move beyond accreditation to standardizing and enforcing the quality of management training in Nigeria. Most successful training firms in Nigeria have risen to the heights they have attained by setting and maintaining their own standards.;
Second, is the status of training firms accredited by Centre for Management Development (CMD) who still struggle for recognition by government agencies despite the huge investment of time and money in securing accreditation from Centre for Management Development (CMD). For instance, it is doubtful if the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) fully recognizes Centre for Management Development (CMD) accredited training firms in Nigeria. TETfund is a government agency funded by the two percent education tax paid from the assessable profit of companies registered in Nigeria to provide supplementary support to all level of public tertiary institutions with the main objective of using funding alongside project management for the rehabilitation, restoration, and consolidation of Tertiary Education in Nigeria. The Centre for Management Development (CMD) will do well to resolve this problem. Not only with TETfund, but with all other agencies and parastatals of government.
Third, and lastly, unlike the Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON) that was setup by the Federal Government of Nigeria in the Military era as a management development institution with clear responsibly for training staff of the civil service, it would be helpful for the Centre for Management Development (CMD) to clearly define and maintain its role within the training industry. A situation where it plays the umpire, and a player does not augur well for the development of management training in Nigeria.
