“Merging the great strengths of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and SIA Group is a strategic decision that has created an even stronger learning and development consultancy with greatly enhanced capacity. As a result, we will be better able to meet the growing and changing needs of our clients in the future. In addition we will be able to play a wider role in the creation and sharing of knowledge to provide policy makers, businesses and other organisations with fresh thinking and authoritative guidance on all aspects of developing the leadership skills of talented technical professionals.”
Stephen Tetlow, Chief Executive of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers said:
“Merging the engineering expertise of the Institution with the experience of SIA Group will allow us to provide better learning and professional development services to our members and clients. SIA Group already has an impressive global reach and we want to build on this to provide authoritative guidance for even more businesses, governments and other organisations.”
Globally we are witnessing an increasing need for organisations to develop their leadership capacity and enhance the continuing professional development of their employees. The demand for leaders and managers who can deal with change, ambiguity and fragmentation is increasing, as is the need to operate globally, across boundaries and cultures and in a remote and virtual way.
