It is estimated that there are approximately 220 new managers each year at UBC. Many of these new managers are left to navigate UBC and their role without support. A Needs Assessment report was completed in 2007, outlining the challenges faced by new managers and including recommendations for the design of a learning program to support this group of individuals in their first year on the job.
The Advisory Committee for the project helps the design team to determine whether the decisions made with respect to program design, format and structure will be perceived as answering the needs identified during the Needs Assessment.
